Ultimate Painting – “Ten Street” (Stereogum Premiere)

Young British rockers James Hoare (of Veronica Falls) and Jack Cooper (of Mazes) made a record together under the name Ultimate Painting, and they’re coming to America to promote it this October. “Ten Street,” the single they’re sharing today, is a rambling groove that exists on the same slipshod continuum as Lou Reed and Pavement.

Veronica Falls – “Buried Alive”

The fuzzy, sprightly British indie-pop revivalists Veronica Falls have a sophomore album called Waiting For Something To Happen waiting to come out, and first single “Teenage” promised good things.

Veronica Falls – “Teenage” Video

We’ve already heard “Teenage,” the blurrily jangling new single from old-school London indie-poppers Veronica Falls. And now here’s the video, an out-of-focus affair in which the band’s members look like they’re posing for an early-’90s album cover in every single shot. Watch it below. More »

Veronica Falls – “Bad Feeling” Video

Phillippa Bloomfield directs this clip for Veronica Falls’ uptempo “Bad Feeling,” where the band trots around a forest and gets all metaphorical by stomping on some flowers and throwing logs in lakes. There’s even a burning book in there! Bases are covered, from an imagery perspective. More »

Veronica Falls – “Beachy” Video

London’s Veronica Falls are boy/girl quartet that are, in some ways, similar to their tour mates Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. Their male and female harmonies are more plaintive and monotone though, giving songs like “Beachy Head” an ominous vibe (check the opening harmonies and downcast surf guitar further in).
