Oneohtrix Point Never compiles (sick) commissioned work for Record Store Day 12-inch, plots more tour dates

Weep no more, children. Record Store Day is coming soon, so your tears are understandable, but I bring good news. Your options have expanded. 180 gram Toys in the Attic is not the only way to show your support for independent retailers. You don’t need to buy that Built to Spill one-sided picture disc 7-inch again this year. Oneohtrix Point Never is here. He’s got a 12-inch. It’s pretty. Let me tell you about it.

Commissions I compiles three OPN compositions originally commissioned for artwork, film, and/or performance. The most recent, “Music for Steamed Rocks,” is an interpretation of Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski’s Preludes and was part of a Polish Icons series at Sacrum Profanum:

Track 2 is “Meet Your Creator,” the 2012 quadrotor flying robot dance for Saatchi & Saatchi’s New Directors’ Showcase, and the B-side is Lopatin’s stunning rework of “I Only Have Eyes For You,” originally part of Doug Aitken’s “SONG1 Happening” installation event at the Hirshhorn Museum, and re-engineered by R Plus Seven (TMT Review) collaborator Paul Corley/mastered by Bedroom Community’s Valgeir Sigurðsson. The 12-inch comes in a fancy foil jacket with some die-cut peek-a-boo going on, the cover was designed by Robert Beatty, and it’s out on Warp. I’m in.

01. Music for Steamed Rocks
02. Meet Your Creator
03. I Only Have Eyes for You
