Bored Cops Bored Cops LP

Don’t let the predominance of guitars fool you, this is pop—and not quite as engaging as I would have hoped. The compositions have no real stylistic niche and remain fairly generic: the vocals are just amateurish enough to become cloying after a while. Not good.

Bored Cops Death Beach / Three Hearts 7″

The A-side is a tuneful thrasher that holds your attention with its pounding, building drive and lyrics. The flip is a ballad about growing up that starts out interesting but goes on far too long. Worth it for the “Death Beach” alone, though.
