8/10 Mike Staff review, 24 April 2013

Perennial live favourites and some-time Gira backers Akron/Family are back this week with their seventh album ‘Sub Verses’, yet another strident collection of loved-up psych rock, bounding in on a high note with ‘No-Room’ recalling some of their Angels of Light moments, uplifting and repetitive with a streak of darkness.

Over the course of the album it’s clear that their vigour and explorative spirit hasn’t diminished, with the textures ranging from drawn out droning clamour to the bounding power-pop of ‘Sand Talk’, which is followed unexpectedly with the some jarring Carpenter-esque synth chills chillingly offset by almost Sandro Perri-ish crooning, then moving straight on to the tribalistic Animal Collectivisms of ‘Holy Boredom’ which bursts into caffeine-fuelled early-Liars post-punk hypno-scree.

It’s a compelling and strangely narrative collection, despite many of the songs differing greatly they flow together almost seamlessly and their noisy experimental side is always tempered by simple, upbeat melodies and elements of classic rock and ‘70s r’n’b.
