Labelmates Annabel and Dowsing have teamed for a four-song 7″ out on split-happy emo label Count Your Lucky Stars.

It’s been five long years since Bishop Allen‘s last album, 2009’s naive pop Grrr…, but now the Brooklyn indie rock band is back with Lights Out, due out August 19 via Dead Oceans. Leading single “Start Again”–yes, it’s quite aptly titled–is a poppy synth-driven song that perfectly bridges where the band left off to where they find themselves now: […]

‘This Is Where I Leave You’ Trailer: Jane Fonda Has Bionic Breasts
