Bishop Allen, Page France, The Teeth
Obsessed with a found trashed white piano, decidedly quirky and channeling everything from '80s pop to Modest Mouse, Bishop Allen is a band chasing after the heart of every scenester from here to Williamsburg. The group, consisting of permanent members Christian Rudder and Justin Rice and a rotating cast of others, chooses its hooks carefully, inserting the struggling tinkle of aforementioned piano into songs of almost childlike simplicity, like "Click Click Click Camera," or curling a minimal, catchy guitar line around tick-tock drums and a melody that would do the Kinks proud on "Rain." Good enough—but throw in Page France's sly folk songs and the Teeth's twisted, Americanized Brit-pop, and you just might have the show of the week.
