about

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.
