Darkside is back. Kind of.
The duo, producer Nicolas Jaar and multi-instrumentalist Dave Harrington, blew minds worldwide with their spatial, spooky, deep and driving blend of electronic instrumentation and jammy guitar, earning wide-eyed praise from any who saw them live during a too-brief tenure that produced one EP, a single album (Psychic) and a pair of LP outtakes.
The guys haven’t made much noise since playing their last show in September 2014, with both focusing on their solo work during the past six years. That changed Thursday (Nov. 5). Released across streaming platforms Thursday morning via Jaar’s Other People label, Darkside has dropped the full recording of a live performance from July 17, 2014.
