  • Most reviews for SET `EM WILD steer clear of stock comparisons, and rightfully so. Akron/Family's first record for Dead Oceans is a wildly versatile affair, led by Seth Olinksy's lucid guitar playing and an increasingly tribal percussive backbone, both of which provide a languidly psychedelic aspect to Akron's mish-mash of indie rock, alt-country, free jazz, and avant-noise. While the mid-section's understated folk tamps down the sensory overload that punctuates openers "Everyone Is Guilty" and "River," it's gratifying when they return to their freakout impulses on "Mbf," which paves the way for the stunning harmonica-cum-feedback coup de grace, "They Will Appear."
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.84) - "Here they expand their primarily folky sound, importing rhythms from abroad and morphing electronic ticks and stutters into a field of chirping crickets."

CMJ - "This collection of anti-'Kumbaya' campfire choruses and folk-inspired torch songs could raise the dead with its entrancing, cacophonous sound..."

Blender (Magazine) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his album takes major steps beyond its predecessor, LOVE IS SIMPLE. It adds a streak of joyful African funk, with sputtery rhythms and guitar curlicues."

Pitchfork (Website) - "Opener 'Everyone is Guilty' skips groove in favor of skronk, employing a hard, scat-worth verse vocal and billowing, aggressive guitar breaks."

Signal To Noise (magazine) (p.47) - "[S]ome of the strongest statements are the simplest ones; 'Set 'Em Free's' rustic country vibe may be something they can do in their sleep, but its conciliatory sentiments are a welcome reassurance..."
