"those vocals are killer!" - dudes overheard by a friend of ours

"awwwwww, fun!" - presumed general sentiment

"Pollard strums a crunchy elec guitar, and sings in her trademark heartfelt breathlessness about such well-worn topics as love, jealousy, and missing a childhood pet. But the addition of vocal harmonies, soulfully stacked layers, and classic calls-and-responses by Cope and McGroary, a powerhouse team who both hail from musical theater, boy that's just brilliant. They bring in a heavy dose of class and sass. Drummer Marcy keeps the beat and the energy high. On Tiger Stripes, don't be surprised to find a Phil Collins-esque drum fill or two. Riverside Drive is whole-heartedly retro. Listen to the entire album and you are going to suddenly be transported back to a memory of the most perfect summer day. So buckle up and enjoy the ride. This is snappy, sappy, unapologetic pop magic" - fake review


released May 21, 2017

All songs written in a weird time, when Pollard was Trying to record a boring, stupid solo album, these songs came out of nowhere and melted her Face. Using a pink loop pedal, Pollard layered idea upon idea and had too many voices to chose from. Soon, Tia Cope and Mary McGroary floated in with their superior voice control, enthusiasm and stage theater glamour and helped untangle the mess; then Nate Marcy strode into the room, lookin' all Johnny Karate, picked up some sticks; and, thus, Riverside Drive happened.

Track Name: Guessing Game
Everything has to be a guessing game
Why can't you just speak plainly?
Everything has to be black or white
Maybe it's wrong or it's right

I won't play your guessing game

Everything has to be written on the wall
in letters that are ten feet tall
Everything has to be spelled out twice
Gotta be white as snow
or black as night
I won't play your guessing game

You say Maybe
I say No Maybe's
I gotta know

I won't play your guessing game
