Darkside - 'Psychic'

Winningly Lynchian

Darkside - 'Psychic'

Album Info

  • Release Date: October 7, 2013
  • Label: Other People/Matador
7 / 10 Back in 2011, Nicolas Jaar was about as hyped as a non-commercial producer can get, thanks mainly to a deep and innovative album, ‘Space Is Only Noise’. That hype probably influenced his choice to team up with Dave Harrington and operate under cover as Darkside. The pair’s debut album ‘Psychic’ is chiefly beat-driven, but it’s hardly a dance record: at most, these heavy-lidded meanderings through post-punk, Balearic dippiness and ’80s synth weirditude might pass muster with the very last survivors in a Sunday lunchtime club. As a whole, it’s winningly Lynchian, and ballsy enough to open with an 11-minute song.
