Darkside - Psychic
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
DARKSIDE is the collaborative duo of guitarist / composer Dave Harrington and electronic producer Nicolas Jaar. DARKSIDE summon a hybrid of electronic music, psychedelic rock, and dancefloor techno with the sort of artistic depth and breadth for which the term "progressive" was coined.
DARKSIDE’s debut album 'Psychic' is a watershed moment for the duo, a quantum leap forward from their 3-song debut, 2011’s DARKSIDE EP. At any given moment, Psychic encompasses the ritualistic structures and methodologies of krautrock, the cosmic exploration of classic space-rock, and the immersive, body-moving frame-work of 21st century house and techno but, working fluidity of kindred spirits, Dave and Nico synthesize it all into a living, breathing whole.
The duo aren't dancefloor producers taking a stab at rock music, nor are they a rock band paying homage to their new favorite techno 12-inches. DARKSIDE are deep listeners and creators of both who see little need for distinction between their favorite sounds. The result is Psychic, an album of uncompromising creative vision from two artists working at the peak of their powers.
