Synth- and sample-obsessed Brooklyn experimentalist Oneohtrix Point Never is still about two months from the release of his next LP, R Plus Seven, and has just shared the first full track from that record, the cyclical and shapeshifting “Problem Areas.” These aren’t the first new sounds we’ve heard from the artist born Daniel Lopatin as of late; he also shared an intriguing video which was soundtracked by an excerpt of the mind-bendingly formless and mechanical “Still Life.” Speaking on his new track, Lopatin says, “I wanted to characterize a linear world with cracks in its edifice. One with a veneer of being breakable, but that instead just bends and stretches endlessly like rubber, preventing you from ever understanding its true properties. The proverbial ‘endless vista,’ but with an end.” Warp is still set to drop R Plus Seven on October 1, but before then, Oneohtrix Point Never’s “Problem Areas” can be heard below, where some of his upcoming tour dates can also be found.
