Today, Akron/Family announced their new album. Well…sorta. The announcement can in the form of a mysterious box delivered to Dead Oceans—the band’s record label. Says the press release, “Opening it revealed a sincere but poorly made diorama of futurist swirling spaces filled with toy astronauts and dinosaurs, four blown out song fragments on a TDK CDR in a ziplock bag, three pictures, a track list written in crayon, and a typewritten note from Akron/Family. A post-it on the bag declared that the band refused to send the full album to anyone but the vinyl pressing plant, for fear of leaking and possible lost revenues.”

The facts? It’s called The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT. (Whatever that means.) The track list exists .(Check below.) And Akron/Family is either genius or insane. Listen to a few clips here and decide for yourself. Album streets February 8th.
