PRESENTED BY SARAH ASALY
LA Font is a rock band based in Echo Park. If you read about music, you are probably familiar with Echo Park as it has become famous as the neighborhood a mere 7 miles northeast of where the Notorious B.I.G. was gunned down. Unlike the late Biggie Smalls, LA Font records a brand of rock and roll that some have branded "independent" or, for short, "indie." There are other bands in Echo Park that have followed suit and made a similar brand of "inde rock." Perhaps you're familiar with Neon Trees? I think they're from Echo Park.
LA Font has reminded me at times of the Ponys, Silkworm (singer and songwriter Danny Bobbe spent time in Missoula, MT, no less), Built to Spill and others. That's good company, but of course you'd expect nothing less from a blurb written by someone standing to make a buck on their behalf. I stand by it, though. Bobbe comes swinging, the guitars are chaotic, and the rhythm section keeps it all from derailing.
