Crustcake Interviews Akimbo

Monday night I went down to check out Akimbo at Fontana's, playing with Trash Talk and The Bronx. Akimbo's set consisted entirely of their new album Jersey Shores, which is a step in a new direction for the band. There is more texture and space, beautifully framed by a hypnotic bass line. But fear not, they are still the same band that brought out all the rock, metal, and sludge on last years Navigating The Bronze, so while Akimbo choose to work in more build ups, the ass kicking element is still there.

After soaking up their set, I caught up with Jon Weisnewski (Bass, Vocals) and Nat Damm (Drums) to talk new records, old records, guitarists, sisters, bums, and flasks.
