Family - Hardly Art
FILTER Grade: 86%

Like first watching a movie on an old black-and-white TV and then seeing it in an IMAX theatre with the sound cranked up, Le Loup’s sweeping sophomore set, Family, is a great leap forward for the D.C. fivesome. Mashing up hypnotic chants, beguiling banjo licks, head-spinning melodies and sonic tomfoolery, these 11 cinematic songs are the pseudo-psychedelic soundtrack to a most wonderful dream. And the dream they’ve conjured is so good that you never want to wake up.
