Acker Bros

The Acker Bros are Boston based composers, musicians and producers with a knack for creating largely overlooked jazz based music designed to lull the listener into a state of confused euphoria. They have a large, loyal and extremely good looking underground following and hope very much that you will support them in their quest for excellence in high fidelity recording.

They’re at it again!...I will resist the urge to sputter about not having been asked to write a commentary on the last Acker Bros. record If That, Then This…water over the bridge, guys. This latest offering by the brothers, who have been unfairly characterized as second-string ditty-smiths, is a foray into musical territory yet unknown (perhaps unknowable!) to their dry, high-brow, poll-reading critics. This music grooves, bops…as incandescent as a neon sign! And there could be no more fitting a title than Wigged Out! Take, for instance, the track “I Dream of Zeenies”…paging Doctor Freud! More than music, this record is punctuated with sonic exclamation points of a kind you might hear in some soulful sci-fi fantasy. If “Misty” is your bag, put this record back on the shelf. If you can dig today’s souped-up sounds, put your bebop records back in their dust jackets, slap this on the changer, and strap yourself in for lift-off….Houston, there is NO problem here!
