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.

Julia-Sophie Feels Numb

Acclaimed and world-traveled anglo-french avant-garde electronic pop artist Julia-Sophie announces her debut solo album, Forgive Too Slow, with the ‘Numb’ lead single and video.

Previously she was signed to Universal Motown/Island as the frontwoman of Little Fish who toured the US with acts like Blondie, Courtney Love, and Juliette Lewis. She has also earned millions of streams as a member of Candy Says for songs featured in the films ‘Close (Netflix) and Burn Burn Burn. Her solo work sees her exploring a darker and more experimental electronic pop sound, with vulnerable lyrics informed by past breakdowns, relationships, motherhood, grief and self-discovery. The album features vocals from Noah Yorke.

The album is about relationships and what happens when we Forgive Too Slow and can’t break out of patterns from the past. The songs narrate her story of self-destruction , love, and loss.  By the end, embers are still burning and there is no telling if Julia-Sophie has found peace, but we do get a sense that she has gotten closer to the core of her being and is finally living authentically.

Forgive Too Slow will be released on July 26 via Brooklyn’s Ba Da Bing Records.
