BISHOP- River

This song is so bi-polar, I love it, LoVe it, LOVE IT!! There are parts of it that make me feel as though I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. But then other parts of BISHOP's latest make me feel as invincible as I imagine Donna Meagle feels cruising in her Benz. An odd observation, but I stand by it. Who wouldn't wanna feel like fucking Retta?! There's no wonder I love this track so much seeing as BISHOP is an L.A.-based singer/songwriter with Scottish parents. If there's anything I love more than the sounds coming out of L.A. right now it's the sounds coming out of the U.K. always. "River" manages to resemble a perfect aural fusion of both these two global cities. It harnesses all the brooding distortion oozing from the SoCal music scene these days, and yet has those powerhouse vocals we come across in so many British-pop acts. To quote Miley Cyrus before drugs fucked up her brain (and her fashion sense), "River" is the best of both worlds, y'all!

P.S. That album art can go die, tho...it looks like a bad hallucination I would see on acid. And not like pure acid, but acid that's sold in like pan-handle, bumble-fuck Florida and is like 45% meth. But, I guess u do u, BISHOP. You're music is so good, I will still listen to it despite the nightmares I will undoubtedly have from staring at what I can only guess is Betty Boop's make-up wipe placed over your head.
