Darkside makes us horny

Futurist blues, phantasmagoric electronic music, deep minimal… These are the adjectives the critics used, followed by innumerable compliments, to describe Nicolas Jaar’s new project, alongside guitarist Dave Harrington. Under the name of what could potentially be a creepy death metal band, Darkside delivers a series of 8 songs, enriched with a contrast between bass and deep sounds and Jaar’s own castrato falsettos. We affirm, though, that in spite of the numerous tags reviewers have tried to place on this album, nothing can better summarise it as the concept elaborated here at La Monda of “pornosoundtrack”. This means that as soon as you listen to it you want to “copulate”. Or maybe that’s just me, and the rest of you think it’s the best sound track possible for a dishwashing session. Leaving personal opinions aside, listen to Paper Trails (which is a masterpiece) and decide for yourself.
