About Los Angeles Police Department:
Under the moniker Los Angeles Police Department, Ryan Pollie makes the kind of homespun bedroom pop that excels in its quiet intimacy, while retaining its emotional weigh under sparse instrumentation and soft delivery. On his 11-track self-titled debut album, Pollie wrote and recorded each song in a day, allowing for small imperfections and spurts of urgency found throughout the record. It's a creative process Pollie has now become accustomed to: "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. At times shaken and hazy and at others affront with exhaustion, Pollie is able to weave a tapestry of pop songs that is the perfect distillation of where the project is currently at and where it could be taken in the future. We are honored to co-release this collection of songs with our friends at ChillMegaChill on both limited vinyl and cassette tapes.

About Every Weekend:
While Dan Svizeny has released several albums under his more abstract Cough Cool moniker over the years, it's his solo recordings that hold his most frank, honest, and blunt lyricism and storytelling. On Every Weekend, his second solo outing, Svizeny has complied a collection of songs that is possibly his more assured and heartfelt of his entire career. Written and recorded "in a small New Jersey town after a break-up with the city of Philadelphia," the songs are "about living for people you love, sacrifice, and finding beauty in difficult situations." At times both bleak and apathetic, the album ultimately unfolds and blossoms to show the simple pleasures and hopefulness found in those around us. Beneath hazy layers of guitars and washes of reverb, Svizeny has delivered yet another stunning set of timeless pop gems. Forged Artifacts is honored to release this collection digitally and on limited chrome tapes.
