"Ferraro's incredibly prolific, but there are certain releases that instantly stand out from the rest, and like Last American Hero, Far Side Virtual is one of them." - FACT (UK)

James Ferraro paints a 21st century still life on his debut album for Hippos In Tanks.
The record is called Far Side Virtual. Each song, a melodious reflection of the moment NOW, comes shrink-wrapped in HD fidelity as glossy as a 2012 Toyota Prius.
Ferraro's muse is some enigmatic modern metropolis, where the streets are as slick as i-Pads, and where the symphonies ring with Macbook message alerts. Through the steam rising from our latte mocha chinos, he invites us to gaze out at the dreamy disorientation of our digital lives.
