Akron/Family - "No-Room"

New MusicadminComment

Akron/Family drops a new track with an album on the way via Dead Oceans, which is a label the psychedelic folk outfit has called home for quite a while now. Sub Verses is the title of the new LP, and it's looking at an April 30th release.

With "No-Room," the band hammers away at its usual style, but continue to bring weird surprises in the way of effects, chilling vocal chants, and drones. There's a strong folk vibe coming from the vocal melodies and the chords as the song starts, but there's an overbearing heaviness to the instrumentation that's just too dark to ignore. I'm really loving the dense cloud of guitars that saturate the track as it nears its end. It's easy, and fun, to get lost in.
