Even the toughest to please agree: Akron/Family straight up steals the show with their exhilirating hoedown of vigorous freak-folk gospel uncoiled in motion-inspiring, rhythmic jams.
Shake it all loose with River
from Akron/Family‘s upcoming May 2009 album, Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free on Dead Oceans. Pretty cool – if you preorder the album now, they’ll give you an immediate download of the whole thing. No waiting. So buy the vinyl.
Akron/Family plays shows through the summer from here to Europe to Japan and back with The Dodos, Wilco and Deerhunter (though not all at the same time….shame). Catch ‘em if you can.
