Lawrence Rothman – “Designer Babies” (Feat. Kim Gordon)

The Californian weirdo auteur Lawrence Rothman is a man with some very serious connections. We’ve already posted his “Oz Vs. Eden” with Charli XCX, and “California Paranoia,” with Angel Olsen. For his new song “Designer Babies,” Rothman and producer Justin Raisen have pretty much stacked the deck with starpower. The gloomy, cinematic track is a duet with former Sonic Youth co-leader and underground rock hero Kim Gordon. And its backing band is nothing but killers: Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, M83’s Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Warpaint’s Stella Mogzawa, and, on the harp, Active Child. Listen to the song below.

The song is out now at iTunes, via Downtown.
