Ultimate Painting is the duo of Jack Cooper (Mazes) and James Hoare (Veronica Falls). After touring North America and Europe with Parquet Courts, Twerps and White Fence, Ultimate Painting returned to London to record its sophomore album, Green Lanes, in Hoare’s all-analog home studio.
The album will be released Aug. 7 via Trouble in Mind Records. For now, the band has put out an mp3 for “(I’ve Got The) Sanctioned Blues” on SoundCloud.
Cooper says of the track, regarding the U.K. government, “If you’re late for your meeting or you fuck up some paperwork, they slap you with a sanction and the tiny amount of money you’re getting by on gets taken away. It’s straight out of Catch 22. ‘(I’ve Got The) Sanctioned Blues’ is us trying to make sense of that.”
