Ex Cops’ sun-soaked, bedroom pop feel immediately puts me in mind of Real Estate, but the new Brooklyn band seem to be going for something more immediately and intentionally catchy. “James” has the feel of a post-Beatles George Harrison single, and after listening to it a few times it becomes immediately clear why Other Music Recording Co chose Ex Cops as their first ever release. Their album, True Hallucinations, was produced by John Siket of Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo fame, and comes out on January 22.
Check Out: Ex Cops – “James”
Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
From his still-unannounced new album, featuring Thundercat, Bilal and production from Astronote.
With help from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and an amazing piano.
These guys would probably get along if they ever met.
Another track from Future Brown’s upcoming self-titled record.
