Song of the Day - October 11, 2006

Akron/Family's latest album Meek Warrior is a cosmic treat. The album was recorded with special guest, renowned free jazz drummer, Hamid Drake, as well as contributions from Do Make Say Think and members of Broken Social Scene. The album for the most part leans toward the mellow side of the freak folk aesthetic, however there are two tracks which are definitely harder rocking. Opening track "Blessing Force" is a delicious almost ten minute freak out jam session, while "The Rider (Dolphin Song)" starts out innocently enough with a harp, until the song takes off for an extended eastern inspired jaunt of hippie happiness. However, it is the song "No Space in the Realm" that to me best embodies the spirit of the album. The song exudes a cosmic peace, with touches of jazz, over psych-folk guitars and exotic percussion.
