Akron/Family
with guests:

Akron/Family's blenderized fun-beams of "rock & roll" are real Daniel Boone stuff, as in exploratory by nature and full of danger. What they do is inhale all music, melt it down, regurgitate it back out into the universe in altered states, so that it kinda feels like rock. But then again, maybe it's not, and maybe it doesn't matter what you call it, because best of all, it doesn't sound like a pastiche of neat stuff they learned about on the Internet. Chaos theory figures in there somehow too, and let's go ahead and use the shopworn term "mash-up," too. The thing is, this band is going to hodgepodge free jazz improv, droning industrial noise and, arty serious-music, but it won't be straying far from sweetly melodicized "pop" all the while. Akron/Family rethink the essential implications of music itself on their new, sublimely confusing album, Sub Verses."
