While living in Hungary, Derek Virta of BVRTH recorded his second full length LP, entitled Rampike (https://bvrth.bandcamp.com/album/rampike)
Virta refers to BVRTH music as “psych sludge,” which is not a total misnomer, but is likely overly influenced by Virta’s history playing in Graveface Records “house band” Dreamend and touring with Black Moth Super Rainbow. In actuality, Virta’s music takes that rich goo of a sound and bathes it in precise production values that make it not just rich, but wealthy.
Virta also counts Aphex Twin, Grails, Air, Stereolab, Suicide, and Low as influences on BVRTH.
BVRTH is out via the artist’s Virtageaux Records label in May.
