Max Blansjaar finds False Comforts


False Comforts, the Katie Von Schleicher-produced debut LP from 21-year-old Max Blansjaar is out today. Blansjaar was born in Amsterdam, raised in Oxford and recorded this début album in Brooklyn, New York. He first appeared on the Oxford scene in 2018, aged 15, promoting shows in all-ages venues and performing his playfully sincere lo-fi indie pop songs and releasing his early EPs through the Beanie Tapes label.

For his debut, the 21-year-old spent two weeks recording at Katie Von Schleicher’s home studio in Prospect Park. Here, Von Schleicher and Nate Mendelsohn helped to expand the sonic horizons of Max’s elaborate and intricate demos. The result of the sessions is ten songs that feel somehow grounded in Brooklyn, Oxford, Amsterdam, or somewhere in between.

Max will be touring across England in the summer.
