Angels of Sound: akron/family • M Geddes Gengras • You

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Tue Apr 9 2013 3:00 PM ]

We have Swans' leader and Young God Records founder Michael Gira to thank for bringing the psych-tinged, harmony-laden, folk-inflected experimental rock of akron/family to the mainstream. The group's new album, Sub Verses, is slated for an April 29 release on Dead Oceans, and it's a thoroughly engaging release. akron/family will undoubtedly grace their Duke City audience with glimpses of this homespun yet futuristic full-length tonight at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW). East Los Angeles-based M. Geddes Gengras explores electro-acoustic phenomena, process-based sound design and digital/analog concrète music and has collaborated with the likes of The Congos and Sun Araw. Gengras opens what promises to be a concert of rarefied beauty and depth. The 21-and-over recital starts at 9 p.m., and tickets are $12. Low Spirits • Tue Apr 9 • 9 pm • $12 • View on Alibi calendar
