Yeah, it may be easy to pigeonhole Akron/Family into the fleeting and trendy freak folk scene, but they have much more going for them than beards and art school. More Animal Collective than Devendra, this N.Y.C. quartet's debut mixes technology with the psychedelic folk of the Incredible String Band to create a robot-hippie creature from the not-so-distant future.
