Lifted are a Berlin-based collective which involve Future Times boss Max D, Matt Papich aka Co La, Jeremy Hyman and Motion Graphics. Four years after first full-lenght, they’re back with a new album. 2 is out now via PAN. According to the press release, Whereas the way they approached the idea of improvisation on Lifted 1 was framed in jazz terms, the seven-tracks on this second LP step even further into the vivid unknown.

Zero boundaries for the exploratory impulse. “On this record we went a lot deeper into our kind of studio technique,” Lifted say.  “We tried to cultivate the sound using the studio as a primary tool, almost a member of the group in a way.”
