Oneohtrix Point Never and Dawn of Midi

Daniel Lopatin's music is as impossible to pin down as he is (multiple attempts to secure an interview with the Brooklyn-based artist for this publication proved fruitless). Recording as Oneohtrix Point Never, Lopatin can lull you into a weird calm with warm New Age-like synth tones right after he's terrified you with a blast of overdriven beats and parched noise. His latest album, R Plus Seven, threatens to be his most accessible collection yet, but he manages to upend those expectations with some truly freaked-out Philip Glass-like repetitions and ambient tracks that could be an alternate soundtrack to Andrei Tarkovsky's hypnotically creepy sci-fi films. Lopatin is billing his current run of West Coast dates as a full audio-visual experience, so prepare yourself for potential sensory overload. ROBERT HAM
