Bishop Allen builds upon the extraordinary first years of their career with Grrr..., which Dead Oceans released March 10, 2009. The band fronted by Justin Rice and Christian Rudder is best known for making and self-releasing an EP each month for an entire year, then reworking some of the best songs for a highly acclaimed label debut (The Broken String).

Editorial Reviews

After five years of comparisons to Jonathan Richman, The Kinks, Bright Eyes, and Spoon in rave reviews from Rolling Stone, Spin, Entertainment Weekly, and others, Bishop Allen has developed an artistry and sound unmistakably their own on "Grrr". The lyrics, praised for their "poetic insight" in the LA Times, have a universality that resonates with listeners of all ages and earned champions ranging from the young comic actor Michael Cera to NPR host Scott Simon. The band appeared in the Sony Pictures romantic comedy "Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist", and on the soundtrack alongside indie luminaries Vampire Weekend, Band Of Horses, and Modest Mouse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, fun stuff. June 5, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
I don't really like writing reviews for things. Because, really, I'm not some word genius or anything. I'll go ahead and say, I'd never heard of these guys before the sale on this album (It is $5 at the time of this writing). I decided to give it a sample and loved it enough to purchase it. It's a really fun CD overall. Nothing too super dark about any of their songs. It has a great care-free vibe to it. Catchy lyrics and riffs are abound. They use a really cool instrumentation a lot of the time too. Utilizing xylophones/bells/etc... I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grrr... Music that makes you happy June 15, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Bishop Allen back again with more catchy pop music... these guys are great. Summer is here! Grab this one (especially now while it's $5!) and check out their other stuff too (like The Broken String). This is music that will make you happy.

Favorite tracks for me might be (1) Dimmer, (5) Oklahoma, (7) True or False, (10) Don't Hide Away... but really the whole album is good.

Bishop Allen are immediately likable; just solid, happy music -- you won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great album. Not so great quality control. July 12, 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong, I love the album. The shipping speed was also good (it got here on the earliest estimated date). This being said I still give it three stars. I don't know if atone else had this problem, but the record arrived slightly damaged. The cover was bent and on one side it had a small scratch on it. It wasn't a big enough deal to send it back for, but I would have appreciated better quality control on this.
