Meek Warrior

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?

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.

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.

Meek Warrior features Chicago jazz percussionist Hamid Drake and contributions from members of Broken Social Scene and Do Make Say Think.

excerpt from Pitchfork review:

...give praise to their mysterious, indefinable guiding light with a nine-minute overture titled \"Blessing Force\".
