005 | Family Portrait

The morning after their reunion at the Micro-Pixel-Rites loft jam, Family Portrait reconvened in Brooklyn to jam on Sunday Brunch radio. While Mimoun, Sawyer and Brody played together for the first time in months the night before, their live radio jam was the first time all four original members of Family Portrait had played together since the inaugural Underwater Peoples Summer Showcase in August of 2009. Familiar faces sat indian style on the floor in awe. A few choice words from some in attendance:

"It was a heavy session fueled with heavy smoke blasts and riffs, cyclical and meditative like a balloon that keeps floating upward." Matt Mondanile

"I couldn't see much of anything because there was so much smoke, but I'm pretty sure there were about 10,000 people in the studio that day -- not to mention all the tailgate parties in front of the high school outside." Emilie Friedlander, Visitation Rites

"There was definitely a morning-after vibe during that brunch set. Possibly out of consideration for our hangovers, their usual heart-throbbin' rockstar nighttime vibe was replaced with something softer and, dare I say, more sincere." Elise Oh, Pixel Horse

"I walked in late, almost halfway through the set. A huddled mass of spectators glared up at me, wide-eyed, and almost cautionary. Dark Magic was brewing. A single howl arose from Family P's uncharacteristically murky depths: 'Call me Mr. Flintstone, I can make your bed rock!'" Alex Bleeker
