Oneohtrix Point Previews New Album Garden of Delete
Following yesterday’s cryptic album announcement, Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never, has revealed more details of his new LP, Garden of Delete. The record now has a release date: November 13 via Warp. He’s also teased the R Plus Seven follow-up with a new video called “flame,” which includes a snippet of music. Check it out below.
The record features songs called “Sticky Drama”, “I Bite Through It”, “Ezra”, “Animals”, and “Mutant Standard”. Lopatin also gave a short statement about the album: “I originally intended on this project painting some troubled pictures of pop music, but as it emerged I realised it turned into a self-portrait.”
It’s somewhat influenced by cybernetic rock. I’m aware of the hypergrunge movement. When I went on tour with NIN, Reznor gave me the green light to attempt cyberdrone for Soundgarden audiences in broad daylight. By the time Soundgarden hit the stage their fans were exausted, often irritated. So that was interesting, however the whole thing had me questioning the effectiveness of cyberdrone beyond the Live Nation context.
