Los Angeles band LA Font make hooky guitar pop that's equal parts '70s powerpop and '90s indie rock. I caught them in Austin at SXSW this year and they're a pretty fun live band too. Their debut album, Diving Man, came out last fall and they just released a new 7" this week. Both are worth checking out and you can stream them below.

LA Font will be making their first trip to the East Coast next month, including two NYC shows: August 24 at Baby's All Right with Swimming, and Radical Dads (tickets), and then Cake Shop on August 25 with more TBA.

All dates are listed, along with album and 7" streams, below...

They live show is amazing, it features stringed instruments and the men that play them

I like it. I actually went expecting to get bored and leave sooner but in the end it was all fun and good music.

The instrumentation is convincing and truly unique. The players are cute and seem to play guitar properly. The drummer keeps his rhythm very appropriately and seems to have been musically schooled. In all, these boys are an impressive group of boys.

I think they're pretty rad, but it looks like this may be the wrong place for a positive remark.
