Music of 2009: Bishop Allen – Grrr…


Bishop Allen has been around for awhile – they come out of that Brooklyn scene that has given us so many bands. Their current album Grrr… gives you more of what they’re good at – smart sounding indie pop, great wordplay, and infectious hooks. A friend of mine  insists  that their song “Click, Click, Click, Click”, from their previous album The Broken String is one of the best pop songs he’s ever heard. I think songs like “Dimmer” and “True Or False” have it matched. Trust me – this is straight out pop – so if you’re looking for thrashing guitars and screaming singers – I got nothing for you today.


Listen to if you like: Vampire Weekend or Ra Ra Riot.

Best songs: Dimmer, True or False
