Boomkat Product Review:
As its mouthful of a title might suggest, this latest bumper full-length from cosmic explorers Akron/Family is yet another genre bending off-world exploration into the outer realms. And trust me, that is nowhere near as horrible as my description might make it sound. It's always been hard to characterize Akron/Family, and with 'STII' they haven't made my life any easier with their near-symphonic collision of rampaging guitars, soaring synthesizers and pummeling post-Krautrock rhythms. I want to say their closest comparison would be Flaming Lips, but that wouldn't really give you the right impression of just how the band sound. The band have a likeability it's impossible to ignore, and while they jump from the haywire ('Silly Bears') to the near-ambient ('A AAA O A WAY') there is a linking thread of fuzzy sound that joins the dots wherever they care to take their sound. Sure they might get lumped in with free folk, with post-Animal Collective chillwave and with the arching nu-psych scene, but who are you gonna believe? Best to just have a good listen and make your own mind up - chances are you'll be just as beguiled as I am.
