Jordaan Mason

Jordaan Mason is the Canadian musician behind the cult album 'Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head'. Their songs are beautiful and terrifying, confronting social and sexual taboos with rich imagery and lyrical grace. In over ten years of releasing music, this is Jordaan's first tour of Europe in support of their new release 'The Decline of Stupid Fucking Western Civilization'.
http://jordaanmason.bandcamp.com/album/the-decline-of-stupid-fucking-western-civilization

Manchester's  Crywank is about being absolutely honest, about being super sad and about just throwing it all out there. He describes his music as anti-folk being inspired by punk and outsider music. All of his songs are beautiful and you can listen to each of them on bandcamp:
https://crywank.bandcamp.com/

Daniel Versus The World can also be described as anti-folk, but in contrast to Crywank he'll make you leave the room with a heart filled of rage and anger, but a smile on your face of feeling not alone on this planet. His songs are about equality and love and are accompanied by beautiful piano play. He either plays solo or full band. We are lucky enough to have him with a band existing out of other well known musicians in the DIY community. 
www.danielversustheworld.bandcamp.com

Block Fort comes from Norwich and can be simply described as nerdy DIY pop punk. Super cheerful and happy, making you want to dance. Check out their video with a lot of their mates brushing their teeth. Because dental hygiene is important!

ULTIMATE PAINTING

Part of a 2 day residency.

Ultimate Painting, the duo of James Hoare (Veronica Falls) and Jack Cooper (Mazes), will release their sophomore album, Green Lanes, on August 7th via Trouble In Mind. After touring North America and Europe with contemporaries such as Parquet Courts, Twerps and White Fence, Jack and James quickly retreated to James' all-analogue home studio just off Green Lanes in North London to record the follow-up, joined this time by Mazes drummer Neil Robinson.

Green Lanes is the follow-up to Ultimate Painting's 2014 self-titled debut, also released on Trouble In Mind. Acclaimed by critics and peers, the LP felt like a breath of fresh air,  with one eye on the orange haze of the late sixties and another looking optimistically to a sparse post-digital space. Refined and economic, dreamy and quietly euphoric, it's ten songs by two songwriters at the top of their game.

BOTW are thrilled to welcome the band to perform two very intimate dates that'll showcase the new record.
