James Ferraro Readies 'Far Side Virtual' LP for Hippos In Tanks
Published Sep 16, 2011Following a prolific rising career, including the release of his Condo Pets EP earlier this week and an appearance on RVNG Intl.'s excellent FRKWYS Vol. 7, lo-fi electronic wacko James Ferraro has revealed plans for a new full-length.
According to a press release, the album is called Far Side Virtual and "takes us on a dance through some enigmatic modern metropolis, through the spaces of our consumerism, down a street that could be your 5th Avenue or your Regent Street or your Shibuya Square to some anonymous globalized space in a common augmented Utopia. A cellular kingdom of fusion and virtual couture, a candy land of Utopias within a Utopia. iLand."
Yes, that's a lot to quote from the press release, but it keeps getting better: "Far Side Virtual is simply a symphony for Whole Foods and brand new Crocs. A restrained type of minimal pop that spins full blast on Carrie Bradshaw's iPod. A must have on the MP3 player for those globalized citizens active in the world today."
Far Side Virtual will be available on November 14 via Hippos In Tanks as a limited twelve-inch record. The tracklisting is available below and the cover above, while the album can be pre-ordered here.
