This month and into February, the electronic music composer Oneohtrix Point Never is set to stop in many different North American cities to perform on his winter tour.

The tour will include performances in Chicago for Tomorrow Never Ends Festival, as well as Columbus, Washington DC, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Daniel Lopatin, also known as Oneohtrix Point Never, released his critically acclaimed record 'R Plus Seven' back in October, and since then, has been receiving great praise from NPR, Rolling Stone, Spin - among many other publications.

"On the rise from an experimental underground that prizes esoteric computer sounds and spaced-out vintage synths, Oneohtrix Point Never sounds like an electronic music time traveler," Rolling Stone described 'R Plus Seven'.

"Lopatin opens his album with a swell of organ to set the mood, but soon quickens it to strobe-light intensity, shreds of chorale until all that's left is a gasp, and sprays all of it across the stereo filed to the point of dizziness," Spin continues.

This record is different from the other releases, for it has taken a major departure from his previous work. Oneohtrix Point Never's experimental sound comes as close as Lopatin has ever gotten to anything equally resembling traditional song structure.

The album is "disruptive and hypnotic in equal measure, and the fun of it lies in trusting Lopatin as he guides you past and often through its succession of walls and mirrors," a recent press release supporting his winter tour described the album release.
