Alternative Press - "The opening track 'Nightmare' was a smart choice to get things started with, showing both sides of this band perfectly: It's a well-written two-minute rave-up, but the vocal harmonies are way more pop-smart than initially expected."
Personnel: Jennie Cotterill (vocals, guitar, accordion, xylophone, percussion); Stacey Dee (vocals, guitar); Myra Gallarza (drums); Linh Lee (background vocals).

Los Angeles punks Bad Cop/Bad Cop make a ton of noise on their hooky, harmony-laden debut album Not Sorry. The all-female quartet signed with Fat Wreck in time to release 2014's well-received Boss Lady EP, then enlisted label honcho and NOFX frontman Fat Mike to produce their first full-length. With a strong pair of frontwomen in Stacey Dee and Jennie Cotterill, Bad Cop/Bad Cop split the difference between '90s punk snarl and big rock melodies on this tight set of hard, heavy, and catchy tunes. ~ Timothy Monger
