Good Time Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Oneohtrix Point Never’s ‘The Pure and the Damned’ video, starring Robert Pattinson, Benny Safdie, and Iggy Pop. Directed By The Safdie Brothers and taken from Oneohtrix Point Never’s Cannes 2017 award winning ‘Good Time Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’, out now via Warp Records.

A computer-animated Iggy Pop stars alongside Robert Pattinson in the strange new video for Oneohtrix Point Never’s “The Pure and the Damned.” Oneohtrix Point Never and Iggy Pop collaborated on the song as part of the former’s soundtrack for Good Time, the Safdie Brothers’ while Benny Safdie appears in the clip as well.

The clip opens with CGI Iggy Pop standing shirtless – of course – outside a house in the woods, singing the haunting piano ballad. Eventually the animated punk star appears inside the house, sitting on Pattinson’s bed and watching as the actor tries to force Safdie’s character to eat something. “The Pure and the Damned” takes an eerie, synth-heavy turn as Pattinson’s character walks outside and follows a trail of detritus to a strange wolf-like creature feasting on the innards of another animal. Wielding a sword, Pattinson engages the beast in a stare down that’s tense yet tinged with a sense of camp and melodrama.

The eccentric David Byrne has just released another track from his forthcoming album “American Utopia”, titled “This Is That” The new song follows Byrne’s previous single “Everybody’s Coming To My House,” released alongside the announcement of Byrne’s first solo album since 2004’s Grown Backwards.

“This Is That” was co-written and produced by Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), due out March 9th on Todomundo / Nonesuch Records. The single is darkly simplistic, with beautiful ambient noises adding color to the song’s repeated musical formula. As with a lot of Byrne’s music, the lyrics are up for interpretation. The song follows a nonconsecutive narrative as Byrne changes his tone from past to present tense during the breakdown of the song, saying: “This is when, this is now, this is that, this is how … ”

Amidst sold-out shows in the UK and his new album’s high anticipation level, Byrne recently extended his world tour, now going till the end of August. David Byrne’s “This Is That,” from his album American Utopia.

Two years after the interstellar, metallic Garden of Delete, The esoteric electronic experimentalist Daniel Lopatin (AKA Oneohtrix Point Never) returned to score a crime drama starring Robert Pattinson. Retaining his own burning palette and pushing it through a Vangelis/Carpenter mesh, Lopatin continues to find new ways to inject anxiety and awe under the skin.

Its a somber, piano-heavy collaboration with Iggy Pop in which the Stooge dreams about petting crocodiles is a good place to start, but Lopatin delivers the high-voltage thrills all on his own.
