Love Is Simple

by Akron/Family

A wide, open space where antique folk balladry, primal drone and explosive improvisation meet and melt in a woodland psychedelia that answers an age-old musical question: What if Pink Floyd gave birth to Ummagumma in the Band’s basement at Big Pink?

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"The best band on the planet.\" - MICHAEL GIRA, Young God Records

Akron/Family is a six-year old band that in its various incarnations embrace hushed laptop folk, ecstatic chanting, wild improvisation, Beatles
harmonies, West African grooves and fourth-wall detonating live
performances....

Williamsport, Pennsylvania - Akron/Family is writing a 21st century non-denominational hymnal, free of any New Age stink or hippie laziness. The trio (though they often perform as five, six, seven or more) tap into the great currents of the universe and share that energy and unfiltered beauty with us. Their constant desire to obliterate the line between audience/consumer and performer/musician shares something with the Dead, Phish and others who\'ve introduced participatory elements into the mix. However, those bands rarely gave so freely or vigorously to those who stood before them. Akron/Family are a very special band and you cheat yourself with every minute you wait to wade into their waters.

This CD comes with a bonus live DVD!
