#20 Akron  Family - Akron Family
(Young God)

This is something that absolutely cannot be skipped over. As a matter of act,  it's the best album to be released this year and is Gira's best discovery yet.  Yes, it honestly blows Devendra Banhart right out of the water. Akron/Family  has found a balance between being complicated while being simple that any band  would kill to have. Months from now you'll find little things you never noticed  before popping up. If any of the material they recorded while recording this  disc is just as good, expect this to bea band that is in everyone's mouths for years.
