Although Akron/Family releases bounce from sound to sound underneath one big psych-rock umbrella, listening to them never feels like a chore, thanks to the trio’s boundless energy and oft-unheralded dedication to cohesion and hookiness beneath the din. Thus they continue on their sixth release, Sub Verses, which continues to tear folk to tatters and string it though a gauntlet of influences. The band looks to Africa for influence on the Mali-style guitar work that is laced over explosive opener “No-Room” and African-inspired vocal exercises that pour over the melodic indie pop of “Way Up.” Their experimentation never feels like pandering, though, and they have a way of making it all seem warm and inviting, particularly on songs like wake-up electro-folk ballad “Until the Morning.” Even their more out-there tracks, like “Sometimes I,” which has the feel of an indie musical, with eerie strings underpinning a solo vocal performance, Akron/Family’s concoction of sound is strangely alluring and humanistic. When the singer says “sometimes I, I walk alone … looking something, looking for,” it doesn’t quite make sense yet feels innately familiar, conveying vague, lonely dread more clearly than would a direct sentiment or less static arrangement. Indeed, Sub Verses might be Akron/Family’s most moving musical statement to date.
