"Treasure Teeth live their lives the same way they approach art: always seeking fresh, immersive experiences. In the first two years of it’s existence, the married duo of James and Barbara have been based out of London, Florida, and New York City, with no plans on permanently settling any time soon. The musique concrète R&B of their new EP “Sell Your Gold” samples snare hits and bass lines from artists such as Prince, Peter Gabriel, and Supertramp, as well as home-recorded sources, such as the sound of leaves and barbeque grills." Dublab
"Following serial relocations, the Anglo-American husband-and-wife duo Treasure Teeth are currently based in NYC and have just released their debut single, with artwork (above) by none other than Goodiepal himself. Barbara’s cut-glass vocals are familiar from her solo work as Whiteoak, but rather than the mesmeric folk-drone of that project, here they are foregrounded by equally trance-inducing hip-hop and R&B inflections. Over a stuttering half-step beat, “Island Eye” creates an irresistibly womb-like atmosphere, with hypnotic waves of reverb and aquatic pulsations reminiscent of Aphex Twin’s “Analogue Bubblebath”. The swooning vocals weft and warp above this backing, and when the track eventually slows and dissipates, it’s as if we’ve woken from a dream that we would have liked to last longer. Our wish may be granted this summer, as the duo plan to release a full EP then." - Christopher Greenberg of International Tapes
"...When I discovered US-UK husband-and-wife duo Treasure Teeth, I felt like a pirate who had unearthed a chest of golden coins. Pretty fucking ecstatic. Barbara has the voice of a mermaid (I imagine mermaids as having better voices than angels) and James twists together these fantastic aquatic labyrinths of sound that make me roll around with glee like a furry otter in a kelp forest; an otter with a penchant for hip hop/r&b bits and bobs no less." - Subbacultcha! April 2012 Issue
"...They sound kinda like if High Places had only ever listened to Massive Attack and ran all their gear through a Jamaican mixer where King Tubby was dubbing the right channel while Laurie Anderson was tweaking the left." - Fred Thomas
"A collaboration spanning from London to Miami to NYC, Treasure Teeth is probably one of the most emotionally intense quirky bands we have ever heard. The fact that the sensitive female lead vocals don't sound at all disconnected from the constantly evolving, somewhat bizarre electronic arrangements represents some kind of production miracle." - The Deli Magazine

Treasure Teeth releases their first EP, Sell Your Gold, featuring cover art by yours truly. Available on vinyl + other media. Collaboration with these psychedelic mofos goes back to early 2012. It takes massive cojones to cover your face in caviar for an outdoor shoot in the dead of winter for no apparent reason, so props to Barbie and Mr. Astro for that. Check ‘em out at your local internet retailer.
