Today we’re listening to Oliver Coates, a British cellist and electronic producer. We first featured him back in October 2020. That was when he released his LP skins n slime, an Arthur Russell-like repurposing of the cello into modern electronic compositions. Today’s recommendation follows his recent EP, The Pale Faced Family on the Hill, which came out this past May. The “Slime Light Bends” trilogy that makes up most of the record is a squarely ambient set of sound textures, while the “Vega” tracks (2 and 5) are more distorted and experimental.
We wish you a great start to your week.
