Los Angeles Police Department: She Came Through (Again)
Artist Ryan Pollie makes music under the moniker Los Angeles Police Department and is on the verge of releasing his 11-track self-titled debut album, in which he wrote and recorded a song each day. This allowed for small imperfections and spurts of urgency found throughout the new effort.
Pollie says, “This project really changed an important false perception for me. It was that music that I was making, which wasn’t recorded in a studio with a band, was illegitimate or not real for some reason.” And so, these 11 tracks pared down from 30, recorded in a house in Hollywood, became personal anecdotes to a specific time and place: following a burgeoning relationship until its untimely end.
This is being co-released by Forged Artifacts and ChillMegaChill on both limited vinyl and cassette tapes, out September 2, 2014.
