New Ultimate Painting track? Is it any good? Of course it is.
Ultimate Painting is James Hoare from Veronica Falls and Jack Cooper from Mazes. Cooper's Mazes just released a fantastic album called Wooden Aquarium too. Like that band, Ultimate Painting manage to take some spot-on influences and create wonderful new tunes.
Case in point: "Ten Street" which echoes both "Foggy Notion" by Velvet Underground as well as about a dozen Feelies cuts.
But it's a splendid concoction and I thoroughly dig it. I urge you to play it now. The band will release their debut album in October on Trouble in Mind Records. In the meantime, they will be heading out on a brief tour of the USA.
