bishopallen09-2-10There is something so simple and pleasant about Bishop Allen‘s music. It’s almost like “music made for Napoleon Dynamite.” It’s got the same vibe as the film. It makes you happy, it’s a bit quirky, and although it’s not as fluid and organic as some other bands, you can relate to it. There’s something seamless about them that makes them so accessible.
