Daniel Lopatin, bka Oneohtrix Point Never, will release R Plus Seven, the follow-up to his 2011 LP Replica, in October. We’ve already heard a clip of hawkish track “Still Life” but with this, “Problem Areas,” we have our first fully formed preview of what’s to come. Like Tom mentioned previously, a press release said this album “comes as close as Lopatin has ever gotten to anything resembling traditional song structure” and that is deftly displayed in the track. The illustrated visuals were provided by avant-garde video artist Takeshi Murata, who delivers a number of high-gloss still-lifes which include horns that look like guts, a ship inside a Gatorade bottle, ditched Coors Light cans, horror film VHS cassettes, a cat jungle gym, and more.
