With a “Drive Time Suite” of three tracks from the LP out now.
Oneohtrix Point Never, aka Daniel Lopatin, is releasing a new album called Magic Oneohtrix Point Never, via Warp this October.
Magic Oneohtrix Point Never’s structure “loosely summons the broadcasting logic of radio dayparts, starting in the morning and ending overnight, latticed together with kaleidoscopic, twitchy transformations of sound between the dials,” shares Warp.
Its name refers to a misheard version of the name ‘Boston’s Magic 106.7’ – with sounds that mix “maximalist baroque pop within atmospheric glitter.”
Across 17-tracks, 0PN “collages together archival recordings of various American FM stations’ “format flips”, in which detourned DJ sign-offs collide with advertisements and self-help mantras to form darkly humorous reflections on American music culture.”
In advance of the album’s release, he has also shared a “Drive Time Suite” with three tracks – ‘Cross Talk I’, ‘Auto & Allo’ and ‘Long Road Home’, the latter of which features vocals by Caroline Polachek.
