Rhythm Based Lovers, an alias of former Takoma Park resident and ex-Manhunter member Jason Letkiewicz, has just released a 7″ single on DC-based record label Future Times.
A machine may not be able to love, but in Letkiewitz’s hands it can at least be made to purvey cheap romance. Packed with lo-bit cowbell and analog bass squelch, “Boogie Vision” sounds sleazier than a date with Rob Lowe circa 1988. B-side “Snow Drift” has a B-movie-style synth melody that makes it a little more moody and less overtly sexy. My guess is that if Snake Plissken was going to make out, this might be what he would choose to put on.
