Oneohtrix Point Never, R Plus Seven.
The shaft of light shines on the faceless brick, the anonymous user. Shadow cast.
Dread and uncertainty from before are tempered with the light. A sense of resignation is lifted and, as always, the pieces are recontextualized. Whereas before snippets of the past conveyed gloom and entrapment, now they are utilized for a more general malaise, one that does not even require the overt pessimism - just a recognition of what is now.
Soft textures from the past put forward. Much aims for the grandiose - from massive church organs to the overarching “prettiness” of the whole surface. Voices (or approximations of) are present throughout, and in a way it’s one of the most human records under the moniker, even if it’s all synthentic. It is cut from the same repurposing of the discarded that has always been a general guide, but here it hits from another angle. Is there hope inside? For the glossiness holds emotion underneath, even if it’s scrambled beyond belief - it’s only a reflection.#Oneohtrix Point Never #Daniel Lopatin #Warp Records #experimental #electronic #2013 #new release #review #LP #art #design #Robert Beatty
