Two mp3's that total 30 minutes. 'Nothin' like a good huff of paint to start the day right! & there's no one like VTB to augment your daily dose of Dutch Boy. This mini album presents some of VTB's very earliest recordings. The sessions seem to indicate that VTB enjoyed a particularly powerful vintage of Winsor-Newton cadmiums while recording. & for lack of VTB really repeating themselves, I can only paint an abstract portrait of the present opus. Their obsession with small sounds is in place & they already make for a crack improv ensemble, giving their pigment soaked inventions the kind of life that beckons many repeat listens. ATPICB is comprised in nearly equal parts of surrealist/dada sound sculptures & of minimal wave/prog canvases. Frequently sounding a bit like they are lurking in the rafters, I wish they'd come down & help paint my awful bathroom. The real beauty of VTB is their ability to be completely subtle & spacious & yet to also rock, after a fashion. No mere outtakes, this record is cogent & surprising & to be huffed as often as possible, except when operating heavy machinery.
