LISTEN: Oneohtrix Point Never Shares “Garden of Delete” Single “I Bite Through It”
With Ezra's blessing, presumably.
A couple of weeks ago, Daniel Lopatin—the experimental sound collagist who records under the name Oneohtrix Point Never—dangled a few details about Garden of Delete, the follow-up to 2013’s R Plus Seven, via a mysterious interview with an alien named Ezra that was embedded in Lopatin’s site via PDF. Today, Lopatin is sharing “I Bite Through It,” Garden of Delete‘s first single, via a mercifully straightforward YouTube stream. The track sounds a bit like R Plus Seven‘s broad-stroked minimalism pushed through the sample-shredder Lopatin used to expert (and disorienting) effect on 2011’s Replica. It’s the first track in the playlist below.
Lopatin has also shared Garden of Delete‘s track list and the album’s cover, both of which are below.
