Succeeding Nostalgia

BY M. BRIANNA STALLINGS Launched by Jack Cooper and James Hoare, UK duo Ultimate Painting formed when Cooper’s band Mazes was opening for Hoare’s group Veronica Falls in 2013. With a clean economical sound that hearkens back to the heyday of analog ’60s and ’70s rock, Ultimate Painting has landed an opening gig with Parquet Courts and recorded direct to tape on Jack White’s Third Man Records. Former Deerhunter guitarist Frankie Broyles and former Carnivores members Philip Frobos (bass/vocals) and Billy Mitchell (drums) comprise Omni, whose debut album “Deluxe” is 30 minutes of taut lo-fi post-punk pop that conjures the treasured angularity of beloved bygone groups like Television, Talking Heads and Devo. Local psych rock supergroup Spice Boys — featuring former members of Canyonlands, Ballets, The Gatherers and Small Flightless Birds — rounds out the bill. Spice Boys’ album “Two Cats” is available to stream and download at While there’s no cover for this show, it’s still a strictly 21-plus affair. Additional event info is available at Ultimate Painting with Omni and Spice Boys July 29, 9 p.m., FREE, 21+ Sister, 407 Central NW 242-4900,
