Antony Announces New Album Hopelessness, Co-Produced With Oneohtrix Point Never & Hudson Mohawke

Recording under the Antony & The Johnsons name, Antony Hegarty has always come off as a magnificent torch-song balladeer type. But Hegarty has also done some amazing work singing over electronic tracks, as on Hercules & Love Affair’s “Blind” or her duets with Björk. And on the forthcoming album Hopelessness, we’ll hear what happens whe… More »

Oneohtrix Point Never – “Rush” & “Bubs” (Feat. A. G. Cook)

Daniel Lopatin, the Brooklyn synth wizard who makes queasy music as Oneohtrix Point Never this year, has been uncharacteristically quiet this year. Today, though, he’s dropped two new tracks on us out of the blue. One is “Rush,” an uneasy, irregular, lurching number from the same sessions that gave us Lopatin’s 2013 album R PlusMore »

Watch Oneohtrix Point Never Perform “Hard Rock Cyberdrone” Customized For The Nine Inch Nails/Soundgarden Tour

Daniel Lopatin could justifiably take 2014 as a victory lap, or just a break. His newest release as Oneohtrix Point Never, last year’s R Plus Seven, was my favorite album of 2013, and it eventually led to a live show that bordered on spiritual. But that hasn’t slowed him down, and when he recently stepped… More »

Cold Cave, Dillinger Escape Plan, & Korn Oneohtrix Point Never Replace Death Grips On NIN/Soundgarden Tour

In addition to breaking our hearts by breaking up, Death Grips also left Trent Reznor hanging by canceling all of their tour dates after they were announced as openers for the Nine Inch Nails/Soundgarden tour. Right after it happened, Reznor tweeted, “sorry everyone… why would I have ever thought those dudes could keep it together?”… More »

Oneohtrix Point Never – “Music For Steamed Rocks”

Brooklyn synth wizard Oneohtrix Point Never works in a decidedly non-commerical field — queasy drone — but he has still figured out a few interesting ways to get that money. In the past few years, he’s put together a few commissioned musical works for interested parties, and a forthcoming 12″ EP will collect three of… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I don’t know if you guys knew this, but there are 17 new Beyoncé videos this week. A lot of them are awesome, too. In fact, I had fully expected to write this column about nothing but the five best videos from BEYONCÉ. The one problem with that: You have to actually buy the album,… More »

Oneohtrix Point Never – “Boring Angel” Video

R Plus 7, the new album from Brooklyn synth wizard Oneohtrix Point Never, has been cleaning up on the year-end lists, and now director Jean Michael Boling has made an all-emoji video for its track “Boring Angel.” This seems like a ridiculous clickbait idea, but it actually works beautifully, with Boling expertly using the little… More »

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year’s best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating the… More »

Big Ears Festival 2014 Lineup

Since 2009 the Big Ears Festival has brought a massive slate of experimental music to Knoxville, Tennessee, and they’ve just announced their lineup for next spring (the festival occurs during the weekend of March 28-30). It’s kind of hard to contain my excitement here since I’m a sucker for this sort of thing, but if… More »

The 50 Best Albums Of 2013

Earlier this year, New York Times pop critic Jon Caramanica wrote a piece about pop’s Summer Of Smooth, about how many of this year’s big warm-weather crossover hits were soft and breezy and immaculately produced and comforting pieces of throwbacky, slick pseudo-R&B. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” drove the narrative, but it also encompassed Bruno Mar… More »

Oneohtrix Point Never – “Still Life (Betamale)” Video (NSFW)

Usually, videos released the week before an album drops are intended to stoke interest in the new project, and I suppose the video Oneohtrix Point Never dropped today will accomplish that in a way, though it might be the kind of interest that drives people to watch Hoarders. Jon Rafman’s clip for R Plus 7More »

Stream Oneohtrix Point Never R Plus Seven

Over the past few years, Daniel Lopatin, better known as Oneohtrix Point Never, has become perhaps the world’s most prominent purveyor of seasick brain-sloshing keyboard drones, and when Trent Reznor wants a remix that sounds like that, Lopatin is the guy he calls. But if the stage was set for Lopatin to cross over with… More »

Nine Inch Nails – “Find My Way (Oneohtrix Point Never Remix)”

Trent Reznor previously announced that he would have some remixes coming out for the tracks off the new Nine Inch Nails record, Hesitation Marks, and now you can hear the Oneohtrix Point Never remix of “Find My Way” in all of its disjointed, organ-filled, bleepy-bloopy glory. As OPN does in his own music (and while… More »

Oneohtrix Point Never @ Our Lady Of Lebanon Church, Williamsburg 9/17/13

If you’ve only occasionally tuned into Daniel Lopatin’s music under the moniker Oneohtrix Point Never, the idea of him playing in a church might seem odd. For someone whose recordings, especially the massive compilation Rifts, often remind people of soundtracks for old sci-fi films, it might seem like a strange setting for his live show. More »

Oneohtrix Point Never – “Zebra”

Oneohtrix Point Never’s new album, R Plus Seven, isn’t out for a few more weeks, but in addition to “Problem Areas” and an excerpt of “Still Life,” here’s a track that should definitely be able to tide fans over until then. That’s because “Zebra,” which comes right in the middle (and is in every way… More »

Q&A: Daniel Lopatin — AKA Oneohtrix Point Never — On The Making Of His Excellent New Album, R Plus Seven

If you didn’t know anything about Daniel Lopatin — the synth maestro behind Oneohtrix Point Never — and you just had to guess what he might be like based on the music he releases, it easy to see how his recorded output could easily conjure visions of some kind of very relaxed intergalactic wizard methodically… More »

Oneohtrix Point Never – “Problem Areas” Video

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.

Oneohtrix Point Never – “Still Life” (Excerpt) Video

When I saw Oneohtrix Point Never’s performance with Nate Boyce at Boston’s ICA earlier this year, I knew we would all be in for something big when Daniel Lopatin finally released his proper follow-up to 2011’s Replica (#17 on our Top Albums of 2011 list). Now, following the announcement of R Plus Seven, we’ve finally… More »
