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.

You can preview both songs on Rhythm Based Lover’s Myspace page. If you want to purchase the physical artifact it can be had at the Future Times website.
