Akron/Family

Tuesday, March 29, Marquis Theater, 1-866-468-7621.

Akron/Family started in 2002 as what some might call a "freak folk" band. But the group quickly headed in its own idiosyncratic direction. In 2004, the Family became involved with the Young God label and served as Michael Gira's band on that year's Angels of Light tour. It would be difficult to say what a typical song by this band sounds like, because from album to album, its sonic palette is as varied as its expansive dynamics. The recently released S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT showcases Akron/Family's interest in non-Western percussion by recontextualizing it into the realm of jubilant, experimental pop songs. For more on the new album and its recording in the north of Japan, check out our interview this week with Dana Janssen on the Backbeat blog.
