Darkside On WBEZ’ “Sound Opinions”

Back in January, Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington of Darkside stopped by Sound Opinions (WBEZ91.5 Chicago) to talk to Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot talk about how Darkside formed, the facts on the origin of the band name (involving a hotel room in Berlin, a fire hazard and The Big Lebowski), how three became two and much more. It’s a great interview and you can stream or download the episode here.

WATCH: EMA + THE CREATORS PROJECT

“I didn’t set out to try and make a topical record about the internet and technology. It felt really taboo and weird and I felt embarrassed about it, but it was also this thing that was so obviously prevalent in my life and in everyone else’s life that I can’t just pretend that it doesn’t exist and write a love song about driving in a car or something.”

The Creators Project sat down with Erika M. Anderson and Leif Shackelford of EMA to delve into the writing and recording of The Future’s Void. Read more here and watch the revealing video piece below:
