Akron / Family – Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free (Dead Oceans, 2009)


Nick: Yeah, I like this.

it’s musical, it’s definitely music.

it’s strange, it’s something that you instantly like….and then it grows on you.

I like it more and more with every song.

the other thing that is very nice about them is that they constantly surprise, maybe they don’t surprise you anymore but they surprise me, every time I think I have a handle on them they bring something new to the table.

I really think they’re very good.

A band I was in a few years ago supported Akron / Family. Toward the end of our set, one of the singers goes ”I just wanna say a big thank you to Acorn Family…”.
