Oneohtrix Point Never announces new album R Plus 7, effectively silencing all bullshit conversations about Yeezus

Good news, all you happy sunshine good-news lovers of TMT-land! Daniel Lopatin a.k.a. Oneohtrix Point Never a.k.a. Oneohtrix Point Never-Disappointing totally told me over a glass of my own homemade, post-spin-class Kombucha tea this morning that he was thinking of releasing his new album, a double LP entitled R Plus 7, on October 1! I was all like “yeah, man, you totally should do that.” And then he was like, “cool, bro. I will, then. Cheers.”

And not only that, but he also said he was thinking of making the jump to Warp Records for this one. We were both pretty sweaty from the awesome workout we just had, so I think he was really grateful for the tea, because he let me have a gander at the press release he’d been working on last night:

[Lopatin’s] Warp Records debut is a major departure from his previous work. [His] experimental inclinations lurk behind the scenes – in the concepts and procedures he adopted to create the tracks – while the music itself comes as close as Lopatin has ever gotten to anything resembling traditional song structure. Which, for Lopatin, is only so close: The work is full of overlapping, abstract musical through-lines, puzzle-like pieces that, taken together, might allow you to glimpse an overarching tableau.

I was kinda like “are you really sure you want to use the phrase ‘overarching tableau’ in there?” Daniel was all “Good call, Nobodaddy. I guess that is kinda lame. I’ll actually mull that over before turning it in.” And then — and THIS is the especially juicy part — he was like “By the way, this Kombucha is really good, man. I really like the goji berries and chia seeds and shit.”

!!!!! <3 <3 <3 OMG OMG OMG

Isn’t that just freakin’ awesome?!? I mean, I can’t even tell you how excited I was. He LIKED my tea! :) :) :) Just about made my day, guys. Just goes to show you, it really is the little things, you know?
