The tsunami wave of Northern California garage-rock exhibitionists has reached a fever pitch, and emerging as one of the more broad-scoped acts is San Francisco's Leopold and His Fiction. Splashing snippets of the region's depleting freak-folk aesthetic and sopping them up with a Stooges-esque barroom stomp, vocalist Daniel James invokes the familiar, pure rock 'n' roll charisma afforded only the deftest students of its origins. It would seem easy to lump the band alongside such retro-rock luminaries as the White Stripes (James and White have eerily similar voices), but that just proves a copout to the praises of Leopold's jangly, hollow, reverb revelry.
