Ex Cops features Brooklyn duo Brian Harding and Amalie Bruun. Their debut album is the first release of 2013 by a new label formed by influential NYC record store Other Music. "Boy/girl harmonies that waft in like a coastal breeze, and shimmering, jangling guitars that cast the songs' wide-eyed energy in a soft-focus blur." Pitchfork (7.8). "Harding and Bruun have proven themselves adept at creating infectious indie pop songs. Their songs are not only immediately appealing, but fluent in the indie pop and dream pop classics. . ." Pretty Much Amazing.
Operating out of Greensboro, NC, AL Riggs crafts mini-orchestras out of dark folk music, scratchy, distorted strings, and percussion both stomped and looped. His upcoming album, "Stand Up, Fireside" includes all of those things and more, taking equal inspiration from Nick Cave, Lambchop, Elbow,
and Fucked Up. "Fireside" is a mix of murder ballads, love(?) songs, and the usual sad songs and waltzes.
