PopMattersMichael Frauenhofer raved about Bishop Allen’s last album The Broken String, saying it “plays like a greatest hits album, stacked deep with memorable highlights, corralling the gems from a year’s worth of monthly EPs into one 12-song disc.” We gave it a 9. So, expectations are high for the follow-up, Grrr…, releasing March 10th. Initial listens are promising, suggesting yet more infectious, hook-filled pop from these Brooklyn tunesmiths. “Dimmer” is the lead-off song on the record, a catchy, bouncy number.  Not surprisingly, “The Ancient Commonsense of Things” is also bouncy. “Bouncy” may be the very defining essence of these folks.
