Beautiful morning! Ultimate Painting’s Live at Third Man Records full-length LP will be available EARLY and RIGHT ON TIME for the band’s forthcoming Spring tour with Woods, starting on April 23rd in Chicago. The same tour, incidentally, passes riiiiight through Nashville. Maybe you’ll join us? Perhaps attend in your own hometown? You do you — BUT — just know that this is the only place to grab a copy 'til way later. Check the dates below.
The official proper global release date for the LP is set for May 27th, 2016.
This LP is oozing with seriously SUPREME CUTS from both Ultimate Painting and Green Lanes (both released via Trouble in Mind). In some cases (like "Ten Street" and "Ultimate Painting") slick old favorites are stretched to their limits. It stands as a first-rate document of live rock ‘n’ roll that hits you like cold rain plus hot toddy. All the while taking special care not to bury lyric and beautiful harmonies under a security blanket of guitar squall and pointless effects. Straight to the point and totally balanced! That’s a guarantee and a perfect prescription.
Wait though, not finished. Recorded the same day, at the same show, we’ll also deliver The Paperhead’s Live at Third Man Records 7’’! The record includes the obvious, future-classic “Africa” from their highly mesmerizing Africa Avenue (TiM) and an as-yet-unreleased track “Little Kid Blues” showcasing the band at their heaviest and most dynamic--shout out to that Farfisa swagger and them excellent drums. A fantastic listen through and through and a perfect compliment to the LP.
