Tomorrow (Friday, May 11), visual artist Doug Aitken will present a “Happening” event for his public project, “SONG 1,” at Washington, D.C. ‘s Hirshhorn Museum. The event features music by Geologist (Animal Collective), Oneohtrix Point Never, Nicolas Jaar, No Age, High Places, Tim McAfee-Lewis, and Leo Gallo, and they’re all including a cover of my dad’s favorite song “I Only Have Eyes for You” (for real) into their sets!
Oneohtrix Point Never’s version is now available to stream. Here’s what C Monster had to say about it:
Rewind to where calm meets hesitance. Cast yourself into the most familiar zone possible without knowing the location. Let nature tunnel your mind and virtuality pleasure your nerves. Shimmers of digital ingratiation infiltrate and singe the surface between your reality, vision, control, and human being. Reason with it, fight it for a bit, but let it slide off your chair and sink into your beliefs, facing your face, reading, “I Only Have Eyes for You.”
I love him! Check it out for yourself here:
