A minor-key piano figure makes its stately, affecting way across a sound stage of buzzing riffs, cloudy fuzz & squealing tones: the arresting restraint of Replica, the delicately balanced title track of the new Oneohtrix Point Never, contrasts markedly with the earlier Sleep Dealer's pot pourri of squelchy synth gestures...
Also, proving a point recently nailed on Disquiet, the live debut of Lopatin's chamber-kosmische supergroup FRKWYS 7 Ensemble is - enlightenedly - already up on SoundCloud for the global audience that would have loved to make it to Pittsburgh last Friday night... Hear its often compelling, sometimes grandiloquent set (mostly improvised, according to the "electronic jam band"'s intro) below too.
