|New Oneohtrix Point Never LP|
2013-06-19 by MisterTornado CONTRIBUTOR | 29 Replies | 998 Views
Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) has been a busy man recently; releasing two collaborative albums with Tim Hecker and Rene Hell, reissuing his monumental Rifts box set, touring the states with Icelandic idols Sigur Rós, and scoring Sofia Coppola's latest film The Bling Ring with Brian Reitzell. All of this prolific activity has lead to Warp records recent signing of Oneohtrix Point Never (!), who will put out his brand new album entitled R Plus Seven on October 1st (!!!).
According to a press release, "[Lopatin]'s Warp Records debut is a major departure from his previous work." It notes that this record "comes as close as Lopatin has ever gotten to anything resembling traditional song structure."
Does this mean OPN has thrown out all of his samples of VHS tape compilations of TV commercials from the '80s and '90s, and pawned off his vintage synthesizers with modded arpeggiators for family friendly electropop featuring will.i.am and Bruno Mars? Will OPN sweep the Grammys? Keep your dial tuned to Spunikmusic for the details.
R Plus Seven Tracklist:
1. Boring Angel
3. He She
4. Inside World
7. Problem Areas
9. Still Life
10. Chrome Country

You know, if you want to listen to some of it....
i think i prefer his older style, but this is still great
"hope I get another chance to see him live. weirdest set I think I've ever seen."
I saw him open for Sigur Ros, was awesome. Nobody gave a shit either, everybody was talkin' over him like nobody was even there. Was a sad sight. Then they played Basinski's dlp 6 afterwards to transition while Sigur set-up. It was amazing to hear it in a huge setting like that.

:OO. This is so vapory.....
wrote this before I saw that post, Tornado, but it didn't post for whatever reason:
"has anyone else seen him live? I saw him at a festival, which is important because this implies that there were definitely lots of non-fans at his set (as opposed to a concert which would likely be people who all knew/liked his shit), and about 60% of us loved it, stood transfixed the entire time as these formless grooves and beatless walls of noise bounced of the wall, but a lot of people haaaaated it. He got jeered and heckled several times, and the way he seemed to not take notice at all tells me that he's used to this. Has anyone else witnessed this?"
Yeah I wondered what it would have been like opening for Sigur Ros. At least no one was yelling "THIS IS SHIT, MATE" ??
with this, that four tet thing and a desolate EP sitting in my download bar, today is a good day
fucking sweet im stoked

Damn, that's sad. If you don't like the set, just leave. Your at a festival, go see someone else instead of bringing the guy down. It was a huge venue I was at, heard a couple people snickering and the occasional "what the fuck is this", but we were kinda in the back so as far as I know nobody was directly heckling him. He was behind this huge video projector veil so you couldn't really see him. Still was a really sweet set. Alot of it was stuff I'd never heard before, and this new clip posted on the pointnever website sounds alot like what he was playing. So maybe I've already heard more from the new album than I realize?
Apparently the contribs are too
Digging: Austin Wintory - Journey Original Soundtrack
contribs luv uncle oneohtrix

i...i...couldn't agree more *cries*
oneohtrix doesn't get enough recognition on sputnik!!
considering the type of music he makes, it's not all that surprising. i'm happy with the amount of positive comments this has gotten so far, considering the usual spin of punk, metalcore, & technical melodic brutal slam progressive death metal
"Your at a festival, go see someone else instead of bringing the guy down"
heh that's a good point except that he played 3-4 AM and no one else was. It was pretty random and amazing.
Oh, I was there as well. It was a good performance but I was just too tired and exhausted to really enjoy it.
Looking forwards to this. Saw him perform last year at 3 AM, which is the perfect time to listen to his stuff.
cover art rules
Digging: Johnny Dyani - Witchdoctor's Son
3AM? Damn, that would have been even better. All droozy, drenched in insomnia. That's how Oneohtrix was meant to be heard.
