Stream: Hear Oneohtrix Point Never’s ‘R Plus Seven’ In Its Entirety
Acclaimed electronic artist Oneohtrix Point Never (aka Daniel Lopatin) will release his new album ‘R Plus Seven’ this 27th September on Warp Records through Inertia. You can stream the album in full today via NPR.
Lopitan’s first debut on Warp Records still carries the familiar sonic touchstones for listeners who have followed the electronic music composer’s development over the last half decade. However, the record itself is a major departure from his previous work. Lopatin’s experimental inclinations lurk behind the scenes – in the concepts and procedures he adopted to create the tracks – while the music itself comes as close as Lopatin has ever gotten to anything resembling traditional song structure. Which for Lopatin, is only so close. The work is full of overlapping, abstract musical through-lines and puzzle-like pieces which allow you to glimpse an overarching tableau.
‘R Plus Seven’ is disruptive and hypnotic in equal measure. The fun of it lies in trusting Lopatin as he guides you past and often through its succession of walls and mirrors.
