Akron/Family - Franny And The Portal To The Fractal Universe Of Positive Vibrations.



If you've yet to hear Akron/Family's unmistakeable sound (where the hell have you been??), or you've heard a little and crave alot more; this is the album you've been after. I'm not sure exactly what this album is, but from what I've found it seems to be one of the many albums sold exclusively on tour. Quite different from the rawkus, experimental style of 'Love Is Simple', this is a far more subtle, beguiling and beautiful album. It is understated and quiet, finding a perfect balance between breath taking walls of sound and acoustic melancholia. With its far more toned down style and noticeable lack of trademark hippy lyrics this is a perfect introduction for begginners and an essential piece for completists.
