    A decade past the explosion of the White Stripes and the Strokes in the early aughts, we're living in a second golden age of garage rock revivalism. Whether you're looking for Cloud Nothings, Japandroids, or DIIV, all of your bases are covered. We're premiering "Outside," a scorcher of garagey punk-pop (see our interview with Kevin Devine to learn the difference between punk-pop and pop-punk) from Cali rockers LA Font, and they're a band hell-bent on staking their space in the garage rock front. Imagine a punkier version of Cage the Elephant fused to a poppier version of Cloud Nothings, and you'll get half the picture. This is the sort of song I want to hear at max volume as I suffer permanent hearing damage at (le) Poisson Rouge here in NYC, and I'm going to be banging my head to this track all day.
