Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, metallic quartet Family makes its debut this month with Portrait, mixing the low-end heft and beastliness of Unsane and other noise-metal giants with classic-, straight-ahead, southern-, and even post-rock elements.

“Daddy Wronglegs” is propelled by a groove and a lurch — not to mention some nifty fret work by guest guitarist John Lamacchia (Candiria, Spylacopa, Julie Christmas). Dig.

Pre-order Portrait, to be released by Pelagic, on Family’s Bandcamp page.
