We’re very proud to announce our collaborative release of DARKSIDE‘s debut album ‘Psychic‘ on October 8th via Other People and Matador Records.

DARKSIDE is comprised of electronic producer Nicolas Jaar and guitarist Dave Harrington. They formed the band in 2011 after touring together for several years and experimenting with each others’ sounds. Drawing on their vastly different backgrounds, each musician channels himself through the other, resulting in a progressive hybrid of electronic music and psychedelic rock with an otherworldly depth.

Psychic‘ is a ritualistic song cycle, exploring rock’s cosmic outer edges through the immersive, body-moving framework of 21st-century house and techno. It follows the band’s acclaimed 2011 ‘DARKSIDE’ EP, as well as their full-album remix of Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’.

The band unveiled ‘Psychic‘ on August 20th, at a last-minute event on the Lower East Side, attracting lines around the block and forcing a second listening to accommodate the crowd. A writer for Pretty Much Amazing wrote, “Feeling fully submerged in what felt like equal parts evening meditation and the best house party ever, it was hard to believe it was only an hour-long event. The first session’s listeners left in peace and with gratitude for the experience and a longing for the release date. Just like that, Darkside made their stamp on this summer.”
