AKRON/FAMILY Do Improv Experimental Set For WFMU

While plenty of the tunes off AKRON/FAMILY’S latest, Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free, could get your dad’s toes tapping, the band has an experimental foundation that may leave pops a little puzzled now and again. Recently, Akron/Family was able to embrace these improvisational roots for WFMU’s The Frow Show, making use of instruments like a cigar-box guitar and a, uh, “space blaster.” WFMU is offering mp3 of the entire, hour-and-a-half freak out HERE.

To further stoke your fire, read the comments from host Jesse Jarnow, who bared witness to this cosmic performance: “The plans for Cobra-like cues and Oblique Strategies borne from the Love Room loft fell by the wayside, and very quickly Akron/Family shut off the lights in WFMU’s Studio B. Literally stumbling in the dark between their usual instruments, upright and toy pianos, Farfisa organ, space blaster, Scott Williams’ cigar box guitar, Bryce’s accordion, and other toys, the trio jammed for an hour-and-a-half straight, reconnecting with the experimental investigations that run beneath their current incarnation’s cosmic folk and Afrodelic dreaminess.”

Exclusive First Listen Of JOHN VANDERSLICE’S Romanian Names On NPR Now

Right now and leading up to the release of the album, NPR is offering an Exclusive First Listen of JOHN VANDERSLICE’S Romanian Names (released May 19). Stream Romanian Names in its entirety by going HERE.

NPR shared these kind words regarding Romanian Names: “John Vanderslice has never seemed at a loss for inspiration. The San Francisco-based songwriter has released nearly an album a year since the arrival of his debut, Mass Suicide Occult Figurines, in 2000. Along the way, he’s developed a well-earned reputation for writing smart, adventurous, appealing pop music that fiddles with form and structure. Now, nearly a decade into his career, Vanderslice is about to release his best record yet.”
