2017 marked the triumphant return of Boston-based microphone masters The Perceptionists (separately Akrobatik and Mr. Lif), and their summer is heating up with the impending release of Low Resolution: The Paten Locke Remixes. Here's a free single Lemme Find Out for an appetizer(nuff respect to that dude Gift Revolver who supplied the artwork)
The Perceptionists returned last year with their first new group album in years. The official release led to a tour and even an appearance on NPR's "Tiny Desk Concert" with a live band. But for 2018, they wanted to rough the edges up and revisit it. Enter Paten Locke. Paten had produced a pair of tracks on the original record that were fan favorites, so he seemed like a natural choice to rework 7 of the albums best tracks. On top of that, Paten, Mr. Lif and Akrobatik created an entirely fresh joint titled "Bait." The result is "Low Resolution" an 8 track long record that brings "Resolution" into a completely different light.
You can CLICK HERE for a free download of Lemme Find Out AND pre-order Low Resolution right now on Bandcamp, or where ever you get dope music. The official release is August 10th.
