This has been one the most outstanding branding for a release/musician i’ve ever seen. The vision for Oneohtrix Point Never’s R Plus Seven album has pristine art direction touching on early 90’s european surrealism which I have a have such a soft spot for. The main stand out is this video by Takeshi Murata, if you haven’t seen it yet then I highly recommend it, its like still life 2.0.
Brooklyn’s Computer Magic is just one girl that makes some great lo-fi indie synth material, this song Electronic Fences makes me think if Nite Jewel had to do a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s I’m On Fire it would come out sounding something like this.
This beautiful track by Oneohtrix Point Never has been on repeat more than any other song this year, its like playing Drexciya underwater at a slower tempo or maybe i’ve just discovered a new level in Zelda and its getting serious.
Joining Keepaway and Prince Rama I think Truman Peyote is another band I can’t wait to see live up close, The Panda Bear sound is influencing some really good music.
I don’t know what to think about this new Röyksopp, maybe i’m not ready for this type of relaxation yet this summer from a song, your thoughts?
