4Ever Songs: Darkside “Paper Trails”

“Paper Trails”, the single from Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington’s project Darkside kicks off with a slow-stepping beat and a touch of sinister sexual energy. The song plays out its own noirish narrative, as Jaar wonders aloud where the object of his affection has disappeared to amidst reverb-soaked guitar plucks. In the song’s second half, the moment of clarity finally arrives, as “Paper Trails” opens up to reveal the dense melancholy lurking in the shadowy corners of its subconscious.

Hit of The Week: DARKSIDE “Liberty Bell”

DARKSIDE — the musical pairing of Dave Harrington and Nicolas Jaar — are back. Earlier this year, the duo teased a return with the release of PSYCHIC LIVE JULY 17 2014, a live recording of their 2013 debut album. They’ve announced that they’re gearing up for the release of their first full-length LP since dropping Psychic eight years ago. The album is called Spiral, and it was mixed by Rashad Becker and mastered by Heba Kadry.

While the project isn’t due out in its entirety via Matador until spring 2021 (with no official release date confirmed yet), today, Harrington and Jaar have shared the first single, “Liberty Bell.” 

The muses of La Musa: Buzzy Lee

Buzzy Lee is the mask behind which Sasha Spielberg hides. Yes, those Spielbergs. Her dad is Steven Spielberg, and now the cat’s out of the bag. But Sasha has spent all her career running away from the privileges associated with that surname and has never put it out there. That’s why she set up a weird-folk band with her brother Theo in 2010 and called it Wardell, rather than Spielberg Sons & Daughters. For the same reason, also, she later got together with her high school friend Nicolas Jaar and started the indietronic duo Just Friends. Now, in the same spirit of discretion and self-assertion, she is debuting solo under another alias (although she is still with Jaar, this time as a producer) with a selection of fragile tracks that float as gracefully and beautifully as water lilies do. Bedroom electronic music that is knocking on the door of the room that Julia Holter used to occupy.
