At the core of every contented family is a sense of balance, an emotional push-and-pull that helps stabilize the entire unit. A similar equilibrium anchors Le Loupís second album, Family. Recorded in a remote cabin and a Maryland basement, the record finds the middle ground between tribal rock and sonic experimentation. Like most families, Le Loup has grown since its inception. What began as the bedroom project of Sam Simkoff is now a full-sized band, with all five members contributing vocals and songwriting credits.
