Brooklyn based indie pop/rock outfit, Bishop Allen, are back with Grrr..., another infectious, cohesive, and intellectual album. Following their 2007 release, The Broken String, their latest song cycle is more reminiscent of their first album, Charm School. Providing upbeat tempos, catchy melodies, and countless hooks, Grrr... is bound to stick with you for days. Comprised of Justin Rice and Christian Rudder, the duo derived their name from Bishop Allen Drive in Cambridge MA (around the corner from Pirate! Boston), where these two gents lived shortly after their time at Harvard University. From Charm School, The Ep Project, The Broken String, and now onto Grrr..., Bishop Allen has been able to consistently provide inventive and compelling albums, with their latest as no exception to the rule. Sit back and let the Grrr... take control.
