SoCal songwriter Ryan Pollie expertly weaves bedroom pop under the moniker Los Angeles Police Department. He put out his self-titled debut back in 2014 — a release which our own Philip Cosores raved as having “plenty of charm and sentiment” — and is now gearing up to unveil his follow-up LP later this year.
