In House #1777: 2007 in Preview (Part 1); New Bishop Allen EPs
One of the most interesting things to happen in music was undoubtedly Bishop Allen's unprecedented EP-a-month project. The Boston-based band recently issued the final two of the twelve self-recorded, self-designed, self-mailed EPs, November and December, together bringing a perfect end to the impressively diverse and consistent series. Let's hope for a new full-length sometime in 2007.
Also today, the first part of our eary 2007 preview as we get to music from a few of the more promising releases out in the first quarter of the year. The extensive list includes the likes of The Shins, Of Montreal, Low, Aqueduct, Apples in Stereo, and Menomena, among others.
