Los Angeles Police Department :: "The Only One"

It doesn't get any more essential than, "You're the only one I can be myself with," as Ryan Pollie, the brain child of Los Angeles Police Department sings on "The Only One". Leaving such little room for error - the title lyric narrows the listener to one and one only - the shabby guitar progression and the lazy bass line add up to a crushing ode the unnamed recipient of this musical love letter. It's Ketamine surf-rock, a languid meditation on the self and another, the arrangement finally picking up momentum in the final movement before washing away to nothing.
