Just before a show last November, AKRON/FAMILY stopped by a Turkish café and confectionery in Vienna to record a session with Euro indie music bloggers They Shoot Music Don’t They. You can watch two songs from the session — the new track “Silly Bear,” included below, and “Crickets” from 2007’s Love is Simple. Watch both clips and see some extra photos from the session HERE.
Meanwhile, Akron/Family are back in the States and on the road this spring. The band will kick off a month-long tour with a free show in Portland this weekend.
