Oneohtrix Point Never
The Krautrock hinted at in Daniel Lopatin's side project Infinity Window takes full formation on his latest Oneohtrix Point Never release Zones Without People. The record is the second in a three part series that links the shifting drone of his No Fun release Betrayed in the Octagon and the more fully realized harmonic visions to follow. The bulk of Zones floats between crystalline antiseptic landscapes of Utopian unease and arpeggiated mechanic precision. The specter of Krautrock and electronic music's past hangs heavy over Lopatin's head, but he manages to pull his works deeper into the buzzing electric din than many of his predecessors seemed to have allowed themselves to reach. When headphones are employed, OPN takes the listener to strange sensory deprived places that the soul wasn't meant to reach, aching for touch with humanity but feeling only the mechanic buzz and warble of the nebulous energy that flows through Zones. You can feel the lock step breakdown of social fabric in its clean and polished drones, both sad and at the same time devoid of any tangible feelings. Definitely an intriguing and engaging release.
