AKRON/FAMILY Featured On Spinning On Air

Over the holiday weekend, AKRON/FAMILY returned once again to WNYC’s respected Spinning On Air, as part of the long-running program’s Independents Day feature, where the band was “celebrated for their musical adventurousness, the transcendental spirit in their music, and the crackling excitement of their marathon live shows.” AKRON/FAMILY discussed the music of its latest album, Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free, with host David Garland, as well as performed an intimate acoustic session. Have a listen at the Spinning On Air site HERE.

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.”
