Check Out: Ex Cops - "James"

Ex Cops

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.
