ONEOHTRIX_POINT_NEVER

Thus far, Oneohtrix Point Never’s forthcoming Warp Records debut, R Plus Sevenhas proven to be perhaps Daniel Lopatin‘s most experimental and self-referential work to date. “Still Life” was seemingly made of files culled from Windows 95, while “Problem Areas” combined the sounds of an old, decrepit townhouse. With “Zebra”, Lopatin has found equally intriguing source material: New Age music.

Together, the slow unfurl of glitchy synths, the big, hallow-sounding drums, and waves of ambiance feel like some Enya song that’s been chopped and screwed and strewn together again a few hundred times. And by the time the whole thing levels out with the ending refrain of horns and chimes, all the talk of morphogenesis and “fetishistic material interactions” just fades away into pure aural bliss. Align your chakras and listen in below.

R Plus Seven hits stores October 1st via Warp. Lopatin has also announced a visual campaign for the album, designed by artist Jacob Ciocci. You can view various pieces of artwork at pointnever.com.
