Laurie Tompkins – Sharp Love Slow Faint (Hyperdelia, CD/digital)

The Berlin label Hyperdelia has largely paused during the pandemic, but is now following up a recently released album by Stellan Veloce with the next one: British composer Laurie Tompkins creates a kind of jazz-inspired outsider music over the course of »Sharp Love Slow Faint«, which is complemented by a lot of crooning and manipulated vocals. A wondrous album with strange pop appeal.
