Oliver Coates and Laurie Tompkins team up for twisted new avant-classical album Ample Profanity
“A deviant, punkish avant-classical composition hallucinated and expectorated by two prodigious talents.”
Radiohead collaborator and cellist Oliver Coates has joined forces with avant-classical composer Laurie Tompkins for a new collaborative album called Ample Profanity.
Out June 29 on Tompkins’s Slip imprint, the LP marks the first proper collaboration between the two experimental upstarts and promises “a let-it-all-out session of deviant, punkish avant-classical composition,” according to the press release.
Tompkins composes on keys, tapes and samples, while Coates commands the cello and both artists sing an album that is “beautiful, funny and f*cked up in equally satisfying measures.” See the artwork and tracklist below.
Coates’s first release for RVNG. Intl, Shelley’s on Zenn-La, is out September 7.
01. ‘Sniffin Samgh’
