word association: darkside

17 Nov

There’s been a darkness to the day so coming across Darkside feels right. Composed of Nicolas Jaar, still an undergrad (studying comparative literature), and Dave Harrington, the group just released an eponymous EP available for $5. The song I heard, “AI” is ambient but grounded in a soulful guitar riff and seems made for staring at your computer screen and playing word association games with yourself.

“Darkside” –> Star Wars, Darth Vader, Superman, villain, evil, capes, juggernaut, comic books, video games, childhood.

It’s difficult to know if you’re being honest when you’re playing alone.

Listen to “AI” here.
