Grrr…

picture-12

Says Brooklyn’s (Oh, no!) two-piece Bishop Allen, or are they a four-piece?  Maybe you recently caught them in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist – maybe even on this blog.   Regardless, these simple, quirky at times popsters are about to unleash their third full length LP entitled Grrr. (And I thought Spoon’s last title was stupid) Don’t be deterred by the lack of a title, because the songs are capable of enlivening you with their playfulness.  If John Vanderslice‘s music had an exuberant personality, some cute sounding ladies who can sprinkle songs with sweet sounding “ahh”s & “ooh”s,  and JV’s band was well versed in upbeat diddies, one might have a slight idea of what a Bishop Allen composition is capable of.  Two ’09 samples below…
