When I first started doing the blogging-thing back in 2005, it seemed to me that BISHOP ALLEN were getting an undue amount of attention from the "establishment" bloggers. If memory serves, YOU AIN'T NO PICASSO was leading the charge at the time. Yet, despite my best efforts, I couldn't seem to find the necessary wavelength. Vibe. Groove. Whatever. At a certain point, I resigned myself to the fact that I would never "get" Bishop Allen.

Now, two years later, I STILL don't get them. But, to commemorate today's release of their new CD, THE BROKEN STRING, I am offering up the four Bishop Allen songs that I actually sort of enjoy. Faint praise? You betcha. But I'm confident my lukewarm tribute will be more than made up for by the gargantuan gushing of bigger and better bloggers.
