  1. River Morning On Michigan Avenue (Thinking Of Old Friends)
Press Alcove

"River" is the second single from Akron/Family's 2009 release, Set 'Em Wild, Set 'Em Free. Following the thundering and anthemic "Everyone is Guilty," "River" returns to something they have always been known for: a timeless hook. "River" delivers Ali Farka Toure-like guitar work, but this song is all about the infectious vocal melody.

Like the "Everyone is Guilty" 7-inch, "River" features an exclusive non-album b-side, the lovely "Morning on Michigan Avenue (Thinking of Old Friends)." Strictly limited edition, we advise scoring one of these slabs of vinyl now.
