Have we reached the point where Ms. Friedberger no longer needs a parentheses noting she's one-half of the Fiery Furnaces next to her name? Because if we haven't, something's wrong. For a full year now, her solo debut, the appropriately titled Last Summer, has been spinning charming musical anecdotes in the idiosyncratic, melody-driven way that only she can. And have we reached the point yet where bands mixing sunshine and shoegaze are old news? We sure hope not, because Ex Cops could rise to the top using that recipe.
