So It Goes presents MAX BLANSJAAR

We are very excited to team up with Oxford-based Divine Schism to bring Max Blansjaar to Clitheroe. Fans of Beck, Daniel Johnston, Courtney Barnett, Darwin Deez, Jeffrey Lewis, The Velvet Underground, Magnetic Fields should not miss this show!

Max Blansjaar was born in Amsterdam, raised in Oxford and recorded this début album in Brooklyn. He 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. Since then he has released two EPs of laptop recordings on Beanie Tapes and become a fixture of the local scene, packing out pub back rooms and festival tents.

For his first full-length album, Max wanted to work with a producer to expand his sonic horizons. The shortlist of dream collaborators was quickly narrowed down to one: Katie Von Schleicher, whose self-produced 2020 album Consummation was on repeat on Max’s iPod. KVS had started producing other bands alongside Market’s Nate Mendelsohn, and they felt like the perfect combination to help make magic from Max’s elaborate and musically intricate demos.

Max spent two weeks in KVS’ home studio in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, working with Katie, Nate and friends who dropped in to lay down bass and drums. In ten intense days they captured ten songs that feel somehow grounded in Brooklyn, Oxford, Amsterdam or somewhere in between.
