Bishop Allen: Dimmer + The Ancient Commonsense of Things


I caught Bishop Allen live for the first time a few weeks ago at Skully’s. Up until then I had let the band slip under my radar. They were great live and the new material sounded really good. I can’t wait to hear the whole record.

The new album, Grr…, is out March 10. You can pre-order it here. Download two new songs from the record:

    Mary Poppins bridges. The girl got a weird face if you look at it close enough.
    They are decent. B-
    Tolerable Scarf music for the well-intentioned Ivy League fissad set.
