Pitchfork: James Ferraro – Far Side Virtual

one comment

Reviewed the latest James Ferraro record which is a little different than the dozens of others James Ferraro records. I listen to this a lot but I have no idea whether or not it’s any good.

James Ferraro’s latest stares down our contemporary world of the future, invaded by iPads, overwhelmed by Skype meetings, and caught up in the unnecessary conveniences of self-serve frozen yogurt spots, with an equal sense of dread and awe. All those 1980s and 90s approximations of the future, in which we’d collectively have luxury stacked on top of luxury, actually sort of arrived, and they’re totally awesome– and really fucking creepy.

Far Side Virtual is inspired by goofy junk like the Windows 95 sound (composed by Brian Eno, it should be mentioned) and the melodies that kick out of a medium-priced keyboard when you punch the “demo” button. It’s a collection of eerily wholesome sounds delivered in an uncomfortably straightforward manner. Either a whole lot of work or very little work went into this record…
