Bishop Allen's "July" EP

Since we do not celebrate the tradition of July Morning here in the United States, we must pause to reflect upon the arrival of the seventh month of the year in some other fashion. My suggestion: try to listen to Bishop Allen's 2006 EP, entitled July, released in, of course, July of 2006. Part of their one EP per month project that year, the July EP features "Click Click Click Click," which would later appear on their 2007 LP, The Broken String.

Bishop Allen is considered to be an indie rock band, although they do not have many of the morose staples of such groups, despite their being from Brooklyn. Indeed, there is occasionally a joy and panache to their music that is absent from many low-fi or undercooked modern rock.

That means that their music is especially appropriate for the summer months.

So, dear readers, as you find yourself a few short days away from the holiday, take a moment or two today to investigate this now four year old EP (more about which here).
