New Bishop Allen tunes from Grrr...!

Bishop Allen's new album, entitled Grrr..., doesn't hit stores for another month (March 10th), but you can get a preview by downloading two tracks from the upcoming release here. Uber-catchy pop anthems "The Ancient Commonsense of Things" and "Dimmer" are up there with the best of Bishop Allen's previous release, The Broken String, which was one of my favorite discoveries in 2007.

The Ancient Commonsense of Things (MP3)

Dimmer (MP3)
