Check out our FIGat7th Downtown Festival playlist!

Akron/Family

From Shamanic hypno-mantras to noise-damaged Soul anthems to North African street frenzy, from Droning Microtonal Balladry to modular synthesizer destruction to Lynchian Doo-Wop and back again. The sound is propulsive and driven by its physicality, and a disciplined acknowledgement of Lineage. Akron/Family is here, with drums and guitars like divining rods calling on Sonny Sharrock and Link Wray, on Elvin Jones and John Bonham, on Jimmy Garrison and Aston Barrett.

Peaking Lights

Finding themselves in a cross country move from the Bay Area to a house built into a barn in rural Wisconsin, Peaking Lights sound origin was created with humility and love with a personal touch directed by home built synths, effects units, and rhythm machines. Peaking Lights have maintained a sound distinction all of their own fusing influences as wide ranging as Afro beat, disco, psychedelic rock, synth pop, krautrock, reggae and noise into songs that are as smooth, lush and elegant as they are propulsive, rhythmic and noisy.

Lonnie Holley

American sculptor Lonnie Holley did not start making and performing music in a studio nor does his creative process mirror that of the typical musician. His music and lyrics are improvised on the spot and morph and evolve with every event, concert, and recording.
