Darkside – Paper Trails

Title: Paper Trails

Artist: Darkside

Album: Psychic

Year: 2013

Genre: Microhouse, Experimental

“Paper Trails”, the latest single, right after “Golden Arrow”, from Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington‘s forthcoming LP as DarksidePsychic (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.
