Last year, Rochester, NY emo/shoegaze/pop-punk conglomerate Carpool dropped their debut full-length, I Think Everyone’s A Cop. It’s full of songs about being a reluctant twenty-something slacker, holding tight to the broad potential of youth while staring into the all-consuming abyss of 9-5 adulthood. I’m not sure where the title came from, but I always thought I Think Everyone’s A Cop captured the anxiety of the in-between: when everyone—from the weird dude trying to bum a smoke off you at the party, to your friend who just told you they’re having a kid—makes you feel irrationally sketched-out. - The Alternative
