Akron/Family: Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free

I love this band.

Akron/Family have always exhibited two personalities as a band, it seems.  Each of their albums, with the possible exception of their 2005 self-titled debut LP, features sounds that range from the exceedingly quiet to the almost unbearably loud, from simple a’capella chanting to overdubbed blasts of noise, from one-chord drones to complex free flights of harmonic progression.  This is an overly schematic view, perhaps, but it must be said that it is the most noticeable trait of the band’s work to date.
