"I certainly don't remember deciding. I think it just got to the point where I was unfit to do anything else," laughs Jack Cooper, the co-frontman of East London duo Ultimate Painting. Alongside bandmate James Hoare (also of Veronica Falls), the pair brought some meandering psychedelia to their Pickathon 2016 sets as they were joined by a rhythm section and turned up the volume on their tightly constructed tunes.

But before all that, Sabin and the guys chatted about touring the States and more, which you can watch below. Then check back in on the fourth Monday of every month for a new Interview Series episode from Pickathon 2016. Up next: pop/doo-wop/punk wunderkind Ezra Furman!
