How far out of the loop must I have been to miss a new song off the much-anticipated Hecker/Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) collaboration? Regardless, the two masters of drone have a 12-track album due later this year, appropriately titled “Instrumental Tourist” and filled with a number of other well-named songs. The pedigree here is simply astonishing, and this first single and album opener plays as wonderfully and discordantly as one could hope. Instrumental Tourist is due November 20th on Software Recording Co [link].
