    I am very happy to announce that we will be putting out a selected discography cassette of the great Videosforpictures work up until now. Let’s call it a best of, of sorts.

    All covers are individual and are taken from the graphic novel 'Wavelengt' by Michael Baeres, an adapted storyboard of the film 'Wavelength' by Michael Snow (1967). Each cassette has a hand written track list on slip cards inside them.

    If you’re fatefully unaware of who V4P is yet, quite frankly, you’re missing out. It’s primarily a solo project of the young Jay Lancaster, a New England youth, currently residing in Poughkeepsie, New York. He has been home recording his stuff since i’ve known him, his first EP ‘Very Three’ barely audible sometimes, having been recorded on a rubbish old video recorder. His work is a poignet collection of melancholic, foreboding, confessional and technically diverse and beautiful piano led songs. Somewhat in the vein of Thom Yorke when hitting the piano keys, but still distinguished and unlike a lot of modern music anybody hypes about. Almost baroque in a lot of ways, with folk influence, noise influence, rock influence and general balladry (in the best sense of the word).

    He has been making music since about 2007, and has been one of the only artists I have ever known to be so consistently great with everything he has put out…and yet he is still completely unknown, only having just over 71 likes on Facebook. It’s a crime.

    This release is a bid to get this brilliant musician some attention, attention he dearly deserves and has been long over due for many years, despite his talent, dedication and individuality.

    The release will contain music from all of the releases he has put on in the past:

    Very Three: The Underground Sessions (2008)
    Endo Fanera (a collection of songs written between 2007-2009)
    Anomie Family Brain (2011)
    It’s Fine, It Happens (2011)
    10 Minutes With…Videosforpictures (2011)
    Joy Farm (2012)

    He did release another EP quite recently called Good Dream Revised (2013), but I wont be putting any songs off there onto the discography.

    I hope you guys will like what you hear, because I fucking love this guy and I am privileged to know the dude. Please download his EPs, give him some Facebook likes, share this page with your follows and post about it on Facebook. Make it your life’s work to get Videosforpictures more damn attention.

    FFO: Perfume Genius, Coma Cinema, Teen Suicide, Thom Yorke/Radiohead

Track Name: This Light (±)
She absorbs me into her muscles and I become apart of her complex.
A living, breathing, united collective of lights, colours and friends.
She's shining at the dark, this beautiful figure, and the sun peeks out through every pore.
She's walks like a princess and she is every colour, she is every friend.

When you take away the light, you take away me.
Track Name: Dried Out (=)
She absorbs me into her muscles and I become apart of her complex.
A living, breathing, united collective of lights, colours and friends.
She's shining at the dark, this beautiful figure, and the sun peeks out through every pore.
She's walks like a princess and she is every colour, she is every friend.

When you take away the light, you take away me.
Track Name: Anomie Family Brain (^)
Stay sweet.
Track Name: Butcherbird (<<)
Murmurs
of stories of a ghost
who's living in the woods
are how they will remember me.

(In the water... oldest son... with some needles in his eyes.)

Sweet, sweet insulin coma
and no one right to blame,
'cept you and kind of me.

(So tired... always tired... trapped inside a reverie.)

I'll be
wandering through Dogtown
followed by some shrikes
with wings and tails clipt.

(Staggering... with the birds... oh we're grounded here for life.)

Sweet, sweet insulin coma
and no left to blame,
'cept you and kind of me.

(So tired... always tired... trapped inside a reverie.)

I've never slept better, I've never wanted less.
A little violet light and a dark green hum.

You're late... apparition... you're late...
Track Name: Fire (=)
fire caught on the skirt
put it out
blue fire on a whip
swirling flames from an explosive lash
then wrapped around the head
crumpled over in a violent flash

[the panicked screams and deathly quiet
the world around you falling silent
circled fear of frightened faces
the light shredding through your skin.]

the flames won't go out.
the flames never went out.
in my head.
