Bishop Allen

Grrr...

(Dead Oceans; US: 10 Mar 2009; UK: Available as import)

Review [8.Mar.2009]

Here’s the video from “Dimmer”, the new single off Grrr…. Matthew Fiander said, “from the lilting verses and child-like calling on the choruses in ‘Dimmer’ to the light noodling guitar that sneaks into ‘Oklahoma’, Bishop Allen once again gives us a batch of songs that are so fundamentally poppy that the sound seems both distinctly theirs and oddly universal.”
