The Outfit Release New Single

The Outfit recently released their new single "Caesar".  Check it out.

"We recorded, packaged, and numbered each one individually, using a junky old cassette recorder from the '70s. We chose to release a cassette because it offers a unique quality that you can't get from a digital file. The sound quality is not perfect, but it does have a life of its own. Each tape has its own quirks, affecting the sound of the music in different ways that will gradually change over time, with each pass. You get the digital download so you can have the song as it originally sounds, but with the cassette you also get a version that you can beat up a little, that won't sound exactly like any other version. It was partially inspired by this episode of RadioLab, and partially because we've made our fair share of mixtapes over the years, all full of tape hiss and love,” says bassist Mike King.
The Outfit are Eric Johnston, RJ Powers IV, Mike King, and Mikael Kilates.
