“Montauk Fling” is the debut single from Lawrence Rothman, the Cindy Sherman-and-R&B-obsessed artist signed to filmmaker Floria Sigismondi new label Mamaroma. This is its b-side, “#1 All Time Low,” a spectrally seductive cut, with production tipping toward Azari & III’s brand of house, coupled with a haunting moan of a baritone that gives the whole endeavor a syrupy, down-pitched Hercules & Love Affair vibe. It’s mesmerizing in repetitive doses, which you can get below. That’s where you can see the video for “Montauk Fling” as well, to get a sense of Rothman’s visual theatricality. It’s substantial.
