With Bishop Allen being 1/3 of the way through their 12-month EP project, they’ve safely produced some great great songs. Adding to their ever growing catalogue, they’ve just released their April EP.
The new EP is fantastic!! The range of instruments, from violins to banjos, adds new depth to their music. A lot of their songs seem to be taking on a more serious and darkened romanticism..but I am not complaining. “The Monitor” was one of my favorite songs they have ever recorded with eerie lyrics and haunting guitar. The track below starts out simple- quite instruments and charming lyrics. Then like a flash of lightning, two of my favorite instruments grab the song by the [insert musical body part here] and shake the living hell out of it.
Violin + Piano + Bishop Allen = a good time for your ears.
[MP3] Bishop Allen – Flight 180

In other news, I have one exam left. What a relief! I can’t wait to get back into the rhythm of posting, I’ve been amassing some good tunes since “eat/sleep/study/contemplate suicide/take exam” mode has started.
