Bop English — Constant Bop (April 13th, 2015)

United States                    Bop English — Constant Bop 
•  Constant Bop is the debut album from Bop English, the recording name of White Denim frontman James Petralli.
•  There’s a ton to unwrap on Constant Bop, a record that jumps from vocoder use on a ‘60s–jazz influenced jam to sampled 808–kicks on country numbers. It’s a rich and diverse record that’s teeming with pop classicism and zippy rock ‘n’ roll. It’s all there, and it’s all distinctly James Petralli.
•  These 10 tracks demonstrate timeless songwriting, revisiting everything from Bob Dylan and Jeff Lyne to LL Cool J and Santana for inspiration.                                      © Bop English 4 12 15

ALBUM REVIEW BY STU LEWIS. PUBLISHED 31 MARCH 2015. SCORE: ****
•   At first glance Constant Bop just looks like a sixties pastiche. From the pastel–washed cover to the cheesey title, this could pass for a lost Tim Buckley or Arthur Lee record, so it’s a surprise to find that Bop English is the nom de plume of White Denim’s James Petralli. Despite being ably assisted by day–job bandmates, Constant Bop largely eschews the guitar squall of the Texan four–piece and does indeed aim for old fashioned trippiness in keeping with its cover.
•   Petralli’s voice is unmistakable and this new cap fits him rather well, especially on the barn dance stomp of Struck Matches. Dashes of his parent band's experimentalism only occasionally infiltrate with melody favoured over noise here. Retro it may be but it’s refreshing to see an artist shrugging his usual creative straightjacket and while its title still makes us wince Constant Bop is a fine album.
