Proper Ornaments

One of them is in Ultimate Painting and Veronica Falls, another is in Toy and Pink Flames. Thus have we Foxhole, a record that abounds in sweet harmonies, clever songwriting and jangles galore that was put together between bouts of work with their other projects. Lead track ‘Memories’ is Lennon-pastiche par excellence. Vinyl and CD from perennially-good Tough Love (Let’s Wrestle, Cymbals Eat Guitars etc.).

Ultimate Painting

Ultimate Painting decided to rethink things for their fourth album, Up! They thought they’d make an album with synths and drum machines. Then they realised that doing such a thing didn’t feel right and scrapped what they’d been working on. Reverting to the if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it approach of Loaded-era Velvet Underground influenced guitar pop was the right thing to do. Newly signed to Bella Union, it looks like the duo have made their best album yet.

Ultimate Painting
Live at Third Man Records

Ultimate Painting is the pairing of James Hoare and Jack Cooper, known for their excellent indie bands Veronica Falls and Mazes (respectively). A tour together made them realise they had something going on, leading to the lovely sounds we hear here. This release captures a live performance at Jack White’s Third Man Records.

Ultimate Painting
Dust On My Eyes

Well this is nice. It’s two totally exclusive unavailable elsewhere tracks from pretty darn nice indie-poppers Ultimate Painting. We already know them from such albums as last years ‘Dusk’ where we found that  their charming understated indie rarely fails to satisfy. Lovely stuff. 
  • Vinyl 7" (TIM118)

Ultimate Painting
Green Lanes

Ultimate Painting is a bit of a side project, taking up the personal time of Jack Cooper of Mazes and James Hoare of Veronica Falls. Here on Green Lanes they get to kick back a little from the driving indie-rock formula, making low-key lyrically-focused tracks until the cows come home. Out on Trouble In Mind.

Ultimate Painting

Ultimate Painting are a laid back duo of Jack Cooper and James Hoare who sound like if they have a plan it is to make a distinctly English version of the kind of fresh as a breeze guitar tunes the Velvet Underground blueprinted on their third album. Indeed this is the third record from our heroic duo and once again it has been recorded onto tape in one of their flats.  Expect alluringly lush guitar pop and stellar songwriting chops.

Ultimate Painting

A collaboration between Jack Cooper & James Hoare of Mazes & Veronica Falls fame, respectively. Sharing the songwriting evenly between the pair, they craft some fine, Velvet Underground-esque indie rock ranging from the chilled to the pumping. A great combination of the lads intertwining vocals and jangling guitars.

Ultimate Painting / Woods
Into The Darkness / Know Your Minute

Ultimate Painting and Woods recently went on a tour together, and the best way to celebrate something like that is of course a split 7”. Exclusive tracks from each artist here: one is pretty poppy, one sinks into a very fine jam. Limited edition of 1000 copies, joint-released by Woodsist and Trouble In Mind Records.
