Reputable purveyors of compelling niche music, Scion A/V has made its first foray into feature-length cinema with NEW GARAGE EXPLOSION!!: IN LOVE WITH THESE TIMES, a gritty cross section of one of rock's most exciting subgenres—garage. After a brief nod to garage's humble beginnings amongst American youth in Detroit during the 1960s and its contribution and influence on '80s punk, the documentary focuses on the scintillating present. As it pans trans-nationally, the camera profiles artists like the late Jay Reatard, Black Lips, The Dirtbombs, Thee Oh Sees, Smith Westerns, Vivian Girls and many more in an attempt to understand not only the exponential ascent of garage rock's popularity but the reason these people feel so passionately about it. A wide-eyed glimpse into a musical movement, NEW GARAGE EXPLOSION!!: IN LOVE WITH THESE TIMES is as much about the music as it is about the people contributing to the distinct scenes of the San Francisco, Oakland, Detroit, New York, Memphis, Atlanta and Portland garage communities.

VBS directors Joseph Patel and Aaron Brown worked with producer/journalist Mike McGonigal to offer a particularly in depth examination of a multi-dimensional and often misunderstood slice of popular culture unfolding in front of us. NEW GARAGE EXPLOSION!!: IN LOVE WITH THESE TIMES is a candid snapshot of this magically vibrant moment in rock history, inspirational and brimming with DIY purity.
