LA Font - "Sharks" 7"

Forget the wash of reverb and cloak of effects most contemporary bands at turns bask in and safely hide behind. Los Angeles band LA Font dish out their music in a straightforward clear-as-day assault of crackling angular guitars and edgy mercurial vocals. The group has one full-length under its belt, The American Leagues, with its first 7" out today on Sister City Records. With lines like "flesh fell from off the bone" sung on top off furiously picked guitar riffs and a crunch of rhythm, LA Font's music is far from pretty—but it's aslo pretty close to great.

Buy LA Font vinyl at Sister City Records.
