Shot by Vincent Moon, this video was shot during Akron/Family’s New York residency in March 2009, as part of multi-night stands the band did in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, Montreal and New York, leading up to the release of Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free.
In other news, Akron/Family’s label, Dead Oceans, will be releasing a series of Akron/Family 7″s. These releases can be purchased at the band’s shows first before they will be made available to traditional retail outlets. The first in this series, “Everyone is Guilty,” is all but sold out – there are a few copies left at the band’s web store at akronfamily.com. The second 7″ in the series, “River,” can be purchased during the September run and from traditional outlets in October. Details from the “Many Ghosts” single will be announced soon.
