[mp3] Akron/Family - "River"

Akron/Family have been steadily gaining attention and garnering critical praise for their beards, as well as their string of noteworthy releases over the past several years, most recently Love is Simple from 2007. Their next record, and their debut for Dead Oceans, is called Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free and comes out on May 5. It’s a sprawling 2xLP set that finds the band, now a 3-piece, expanding their sound somewhat - mixing folk, rock, psychedelia, punk, and jazz with lush arrangements and deep grooves. The harmony driven indie-folk of “River” has been released as a free and legal download and makes a fine introduction to an album that will be getting a lot of online attention in the near future.
