Relix.com Debut: Akron/Family’s "Silly Bears"

Akron/Family will release its next album, S/T II – The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT , on February 8 via Dead Ocean. The group’s sixth album reworks songs from the band’s debut recording. As the group explains, “Akron/Family spent the end of 2009 and half of 2010 exploring the future of sound through Bent Acid Punk Diamond fuzz and Underground Japanese noise cassettes, lower case micro tone poems and emotional Cagean field recordings, rebuilding electronic drums from the ’70s and playing them with sticks they carved themselves. Upon miraculous resuscitation of the original AKAK hard drive, the album layers thousands of minute imperceptible samples of their first recordings with fuzzed-out representations of their present beings to induce pleasant emotional feeling states and many momentary transcendent inspirations.”

Relix.com is proud to debut “Silly Bears,” a song from S/T II – The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT. Please click here for an exclusive preview of the track.

The Akrons will kick off a series of winter dates with a performance at Brooklyn, NY’s Knitting Factory on February 17. The group helped curate the official final show at the Knitting Factory’s former location on December 31, 2008.
