🔈 Stuff to Listen to...
🎧 This week, my aural treat is Again, the new album from Oneohtrix Point Never.
Daniel Lopatin has featured on Stuff before, and this new album continues a theme of avant-garde electronic music, coupled with some filmic, epic tendencies.
This one feels a tiny bit more poppy and accessible, but there is still a strong sense of the eighties in the sequenced synths and the pulsing filters.
Highly recommended listen.
