Bringing the best elements of Weezer, Pavement and Parquet Courts together into a tight five-song jam, LA Font’s new EP Swish 2 is just the latest from this ultra-muti-faceted Los Angeles indie-pop quartet.
LA Font has not only toured, played multiple SXSWs and generally done the entire LA indie club scene, but they were also the house band for Vice’s long-running “Entitlement” live comedy show, plaing on Marc Maron, Kyle Kinane, Maria Bamford and Hannibal Buress, and even jamming with Reggie Watts.
They wrote the theme for Vice’s “Entitlement” comedy podcast, and Nerdist used another LA Font song as the theme for comedy podcast “Terrified with Dave Ross.”
But it’s not all fun and games in the LA Font world: Their songs have been heard in Showtime’s “House of Lies,” in the national ad campaign for film “A Little Bit of Heaven” starring Kate Winslet, a bunch of MTV shows, Steven Segall’s “True Justice” TV series, and in the 2015 feature film “Tracers” starring Taylor Lautner. Not to mention being heard on LA stations KROQ, KCRW, ALT 98.7, KXLU, KCSN, and non-commercial and alternative stations worldwide, including BBC 6 and in rotation on Flux 100.6 FM Berlin and Inter 76.1 FM Tokyo.
