Darkside – Paper Trails
Title: Paper Trails
Genre: Microhouse, Experimental
“Paper Trails”, the latest single, right after “Golden Arrow”, from Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington‘s forthcoming LP as Darkside, Psychic (out October 8 through Jaar’s Other People label in partnership with Matador), kicks off with a slow-stepping beat and a touch of sinister sexual energy. Then, in its own dark way, the song unfolds into a film noir-type narrative while Jaar wonders through the song’s subconscious seeking out his lost object of lust. Lurking among the shadows of this truly darksided song are reverb-cool guitar plucks while Jaar’s melancholy fixed voice slides through them.
