Gnar Tapes & Shit

Love Cop – ‘2 True/2 Real’
Prolific lo-fi pop princes, Love Cop, return with their third album of 2013 and it’s their best, clearest, and most sinister release to date. After two prior high selling tapes for Gnar, “2 True / 2 Real” has been released by the esteemed Burger Records and contains hit after hit after hit of burner-boy love pop. Love Cop is a duo from the shadowy warehouse rows of the Central Eastside Industrial District of Portland, OR. Born and raised in New York, then relocated to the Northwest, Duffy Rongiiland and Phil Salina are creating some of the best stoner goth, beat-brat, dark pop happening now. Like a beautiful mutt child of Beat Happening, Television Personalities, and The Jesus and Mary Chain albums, Love Cop’s newest swooner, “2 True / 2 Real”, is a bedroom pop masterpiece of dark and romantic intentions. Toning down on the cheeky and manic themes of their prior releases and dialing down the distortion for a more open-hearted and focused set of headphone-pop love songs, Love Cop prove on this one that they are as diverse as they are determined. This is for all the dark ones out there getting dreamy this Summer.
