♫♪  Looks Realistic - VA/A

As temperatures begin to go up, up, up, Beer on the Rug wants to slide you a nice cool slice of experimental electronics from Massachusetts duo Looks Realistic (a.k.a. Joe Bastardo and Ryan Mulhall). Covering multi-dimensioned grounds from bubbling synth excitations to long form ambient wave pools, VA/A might be the best soundtrack for your neo-futurist or cyberpunk themed BBQ. On second thought, ditch the outdoors and turn this up in your industrial strength air-conditioned supercomputer lab/meditation chamber. On third thought, this will most likely be what you hear upon waking from a cryogenic slumber somewhere in the uncertain future, stepping out into a harsh reality in which your precious (and rare) human body is bought and sold by so many shadowy multinational corporations. Oops! Summertime sure does fly. Everything above just proves why VA/A by Looks Realistic runs the gamut, and is now available for streaming and purchase at Beer on the Rug’s Bandcamp.
