When I got Akron/Family’s last record, S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT, in my college’s radio station, it came with an epically cryptic statement as to the record’s general vibe. All I remember is the last line: “Flourish, flourish, flourish, fuck shit up.” They’ve continued to take that sentiment to heart on new cut “No-Room,” the first single from their upcoming brilliantly titled record Sub Verses - coming in at seven brain-rearranging minutes of layered, buzzing noise and demon-summoning group vocals grounded by a drum shuffle and guitar riff practically guaranteed to soundtrack the next dream you have about performing cult rituals, “No-Room” is practically sure to fuck your shit up. At least, you’ll probably waste at least an entire day with it on repeat. The band’s new album Sub Verses is out on Dead Oceans April 30.
