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.
