Leopold & His Fiction

Often compared to the White Stripes for their stripped-down sound and Daniel James' vocal sound (which bears a certain resemblance to Jack White), Leopold & His Fiction play what the band likes to call "vintage rock," music that fuses elements of blues, folk-rock, garage rock, and roots music into a style that feels at once rough and cohesive, with a warmth and emotional honesty that coheres with the energy of the music. Vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Daniel James was born and raised in Detroit and grew up absorbing the city's rich heritage of soul, funk, and raw outlaw rock, but he didn't make any serious efforts to form a band until he moved to the West Coast. After a brief sojourn in Los Angeles, James settled in San Francisco and began studying writing at San Francisco State University; the new surroundings and creative discipline encouraged James to begin writing songs. James worked for a while at Universal Records, and it wasn't long before he was convinced he could make music at least as well as many of the acts signed to the label; James was emboldened to record a demo tape of his new songs, and through a Craigslist ad he met drummer Ben Cook, who immediately bonded with James over their shared love of Led Zeppelin. After an unsuccessful search for a bassist who fit in with what James and Cook wanted to do, Leopold & His Fiction began playing out as a two-piece in early 2005, and they released their self-titled debut album in the fall of 2006. Both the album and the duo's live shows earned Leopold & His Fiction a reputation as a band to watch on the Bay Area music scene, but in 2008 Cook amicably parted ways with James. Rather than simply replace the drummer, James opted to use Cook's retirement as a chance to reshape Leopold & His Fiction, and he brought aboard a pair of multi-instrumentalists who had already been working together, bassist and singer Micayla Grace and Jon Sortland, who plays drums and keyboards as well as singing backup. This new edition of Leopold & His Fiction appeared on the group's second album, Ain't No Surprise, which was issued in January 2009. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Really like this. It's not derivative like Black Keys but a homage.
Seen live and the music just calls to me. The vibe and energy are awesome. Haven't ever danced my a** as much as I did the first time i saw them.
bobonnit is a nit. This band has grown on me, with I think a new album coming out.
They stink
Leopold caught my eye and ear immediately when I caught them performing recently. I love their style visually, and when they began to play I felt their passion and heard their skill. I think they have a sound of their own and shouldn't be compared to any other artists. It's soul, it's blues, it's rock n roll, it's art.
I'm with you spensoid - J-dub has been irritating me recently as well. I want love is pure blasphemy...

Nice alternative to jack white who has gotten on my nerves as late.
Likee.
sounds like Jack??? bahh he's too soft to be jackie...sti l l nice music...not edgy enough
Arctic Monkeys meets The Black Keys
Good band by-the-way.
The White Stripes sound like a few of the British Bands that emerged during the 60's and 70's that were influenced by American Rhythm & Blues. The White Stripes are far from revolutionar y .

hands down my favorite band. saw them play at a dive bar in nashville, and dispite the smaller crowd, they played as though performing for thousands. love them, and always will. check out cowboy and indian. daniels side project with the phenomenal jazz mills. absolutely great.

Go On Have My Way reminds me of Blind Melon. Got an ex who'd LOVE this...not gonna tell him though. ;)

No kidding, These guys sound way to much like white stripes. I like it, but these white stripe style bands just keep showing up. Sounds good though.

Reminds me of Black Crowes more than White Stripes
Saying something sounds like the white stripes because they have a singer/guita r player and a drummer and nothing else is dumb. These guys sound nothing like the white stripes. Nice and bluesy, plus their sound seems less experimental than the white stripes stuff.

even more gritty and raw than the white stripes, catchy but honest. not contrived at all. i heard them once and keep coming back...they sucked me right in. doesn't get any better than a find like that!
Screw you, Jeff. You wouldn't know rock-'n'-rol l if it bit you in the a**.
screw more of the same of this blue remake crap
Hmm this is good stuff. Go On Have My way definitely sounds a bit White Stripes-ish.
