Oneohtrix Point Never
“Rubio” [demo]

Despite rebounding phenom Kevin Love proving he wasn’t just a pretty good player on a shit team, last year was a terrible year for the Minnesota Timberwolves. A big part of the problem was the point guard position: we had Jonny Flynn and Luke Ridnour, but both of them were better at turning over the ball than at creating plays. But this year, like a Spanish angel descending from the heavens, 21-year-old Ricky Rubio (and his beautiful brown hair) has finally made his way from Barcelona to Minneapolis. Sure, our current record’s at 3 wins, 5 losses; we’re the last in our division; and we’re near the bottom of our conference. But Rubio, who’s currently coming off the bench, has already shown how amazing he can be when given a chance.

Daniel Lopatin, who also sports beautiful brown hair, has likewise shown how amazing he can be when given a chance. And today, the two phenoms collide, as Lopatin posted a demo version of a song that is, no shit, dedicated to Rubio. It’s called “Rubio.” Check it out here:
