Noise Pop Presents
Lawrence Rothman is a Los Angeles musician with tremendous talent and grand vision. Influenced by the music of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, the writings of Sam Pink, and the art of Mike Kelly, his music and message are vastly compelling. For his forthcoming debut album, Lawrence worked with acclaimed producer Justin Raisen (Charli XCX, Sky Ferriera, Ariel Pink, etc) to create something electronic, which ambitiously morphed into a fully analog to tape album with a handful of the most prestigious musicians out there. Lawrence created a full scope, enormous record diving into the realm of self-discovery and acceptance. Lawrence appears as 9 “alters”, similar to the Cindy Sherman of music. The alters are ever-present throughout the project, with Lawrence performing as them for shows and videos – sometimes as an Albino guy or a bald tattooed metal head, a beat up hipster or Elizabeth Taylor, just to preview a few. The videos are shot by revered director Floria Sigismondi, cohesively matching the cinematic scope of his music. It’s rare to have the music, imagery and the fascinating lead figure all be outstanding and aligned. This is the case for Lawrence Rothman. Lawrence’s debut album “The Book of Law” is out on October 13 via Downtown/Interscope Records.
