Oneohtrix Point Never Mania!

Oneohtrix Point Never

Oneohtrix Point Never

Well, 2010 really does seem to the year of Oneohtrix Point Never, doesn’t it? Daniel Lopatin is certainly getting a lot of much-deserved column inches right now, including an excellent piece by Simon Reynolds in the Village Voice.

Meanwhile, the good people at Arbor Records have seen fit to satiate the record-buying public’s need for OPN merch by reissuing the Zones Without People LP. Any chance of No Fun reissuing Betrayed in the Octagon and Russian Mind?

In any case, the really exciting news is that Lopatin will be following up Returnal – his recent Editions Mego LP – with a 7″ (also on Mego)  reinterpreting the album’s title track in a couple of intriguing ways.

The A-side of the 45 will feature none other that Antony (he of The Johnsons) singing the tune, accompanied by Lopatin on piano. The B-side, meanwhile, will be packing a remix by the mighty Fennesz.

All of this attention and activity is well deserved. Returnal is a phenomenal album, which makes clear Lopatin’s uncanny ability to simultaneously deliver the goods and upset expectations. Long may he oscillate.

STOP PRESS: Oneohtrix Point Never will be playing at this year’s Decibel festival in Seattle, as will the Moritz Von Oswald Trio and the aforementioned Fennesz.
