Sub Verses (4/30/13)

Praise for “No Room” from Sub Verses

“There’s an overbearing heaviness to the instrumentation that’s just too dark to ignore. I’m really loving the dense cloud of guitars that saturate the track as it nears its end. It’s easy, and fun, to get lost in.” The Needle Drop

“‘No-Room’, shows Akron/Family at their heaviest and most direct, still playing with drone and psychdelia but without some of the flights of fancy from their earlier work.” AdHoc

“The percussion embodies the spirit of one of their previous album titles, Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free; it sounds like a drum circle aligning itself into a straight arrow.” Pitchfork
