Hi oneohtrix point never fans!
I like this a lot:
Their EP is wonderful.
The above track kind of reminded me alternately of Devo/ Oingo Boingo/ Art of Noise and Sufjan Stevens (vocals obviously).
Definitely looking forward to the release although from the above evidence sounds a lot less steroidlike than the EP. Oh and the live date with OPN and oOoOO should be great.
Looking forward to hearing more at least.
and the meltdown 3/4 in. I have rinsed That We Play to...well, not death, I am still rinsing it. But this is something else. CRT technicolour me excited.

BleeD Music is proud to present the official London 'Channel Pressure' album launch for Brooklyn-based production duo Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Joel Ford (Tigercity), formerly known as Games. We've chosen the resurgent Dalston hotspot, The Shacklewell Arms, as a suitably colourful venue with ramshackle charm and a new and improved sound and lighting system. Support on the night will come from a yet to be announced live act, with DJ support from BleeD curator Casper C, close cohort Benedict Bull and the Hippos In Tanks head honchos, who were responsible for releasing the Games material.
After the success of their previous single and EP, Ford & Lopatin decided to pour everything into a long player in their own inimitable style. Eschewing a traditional song-writing period, improvised sessions were instead recorded over 3 months at Mexican Summer’s headquarters and synthesizer legend Jan Hammer’s home studio in upstate NYC.
The recordings of these were then spliced, sampled and reconstructed, growing unexpectedly into an imaginary soundtrack for the adventure of Joey Rogers, mild-mannered teenager of the year 2082. Battling to overthrow a computer-ruled, megalomaniacal music industry through epic, world-changing MIDI jams, an iconic frontcover by Thunderhorse depicts the moment his TV starts to command him subliminally.
To capture the soundscape of the studio results, talent was enlisted from childhood pal Al Carlson for engineering, Prefuse 73 for mixing, and guest vocals from friends Autre Ne Veut and Jeff Gitelman of Stepkids. The result is a pristine presentation of chaotic material; layers of glitch, Krautrock, synthpop, ambient, prog-fusion and hardware shredding melded into just 14 tracks of multi-focus post-pop edits.
?Channel Pressure will be the first release from Software, Ford & Lopatin’s brand new label imprint on Mexican Summer, available June 7th.
Doors 20:00, stage time 22:30. Curfew 00:00. See y'all there.
