I generally hate the 7" medium, as the 7" single holds anywhere from 2-5 songs and costs for the most part $7 and up, which is highway fucking robbery. That said, I probably purchased more 7"s this year than in past years. Whattya gonna do?
Top 5 7"s of 2007:
5.Casiotone for the Painfully Alone - Graceland Dude does a wonderful minimalist cover of Paul Simon's Graceland.
4.Short Attention - Clever, Maddening, Annoying Remember that cd that came out around '99 that had 101 bands each playing a 30 second long song? Well, that's what Short Attention does, 30 second long or less songs. An all-star lineup including members of The Ergs!, Dirtbike Annie, The Unlovables and more! Seriously awesome record and probably outta print by now.
