    Default Akron/Family, where's the love?

    I know virtually nothing about this band other than being on the label started by the guy from Swans. I recently got Love is Simple and this is amazing. It's so different and fun to listen to. Reminds me of the beatles when everyone harmonizes. Anyone looking forward to seeing them?

Robert Plant would probably be on there somewhere too.

    I think they're playing SC again, and I may check them out... They're pretty neat. My friend who DJs got to interview them and told me they're nice dudes.

    Akron/Family is pretty amazing, esp if you're into jam bandy, hippy type experimental folk music. I've heard theyre pretty sweet live, so I'm looking forward to seeing them.

    I want to see them. Hopefully I will.

    Shame they're playing Saturday. Half the good acts are on Saturday, which means missing so many from conflicts. Will Akron/Family be one? Trying not to think about it!

    They are amazing live. I am curious to see how they do up on a Coachella stage.

    I am still digesting Meek Warrior, I just picked it up.

    I looked them up on iTunes, and I really liked what I heard. What's a good album to get started with?

    I just got Meek Warrior aswell...trying to get into it - some of it is amazing, some of it is just ok. But checking their live footage, I cant wait to see em.

    Love Is Simple is some sublime, tip-top shit, in my opinion. Will be there for sure.
