[It's] super muddy and soaked in reverb and distortion, but somewhere in this band's late '80s/early '90s record collection of noisy post-punk and shoegaze, must lie a scratched up, overplayed copy of Is This It that can't help but leave its mark on these songs.You can stream the entire album below and also grab MP3s of two of its tracks above.
The band have a run of dates coming up this month and next including two in NYC. They'll open for Exitmusic at Mercury Lounge on June 28 and for Akron/Family at Brooklyn Bowl on June 29. Tickets for the Mercury Lounge show are still available and the Brooklyn Bowl show is free with RSVP.
All list of all dates and that album stream below...
So it goes -- Brooklyn's own Akron/Family have scheduled a handful of dates for the coming weeks, including a stop at Brooklyn Bowl on June 29th with Stagnant Pools. Anyone with a Man is The Bastard shirt gets in free.... well, actually everyone who RSVPs does, while it lasts, regardless of garments (do wear clothes, though).
Though Akron/Family don't have any new releases scheduled for the near future -- though I wouldn't put a new CDR at the merch table past them -- members of that band do play on the new Swans LP. Updated Swans dates are below...still no NYC. Sigh.
A listing of all dates and a recent Akron/Family video are below.
