Poetry. "In Mittenthal's work, it's the idea of comedy in an explosion of craft that catches you. He's quiet about it. He understands it will adhere—and it's designed to—to linger. There's almost a battle going on—an intellect that exists only to be destroyed by itself so that all that was is as it was—only clearer. And his sound sounds the most sounded out a boxer squaring off to take on the psychology of currency and its effects on labor. Not political OR only political. A clarity and honest posture mixed with poignant sarcasm about how the world sees itself. It's about seeing inequality. 'Paid to forget, I recall more'"—Nico Vassilakis.
