By Rian on Friday, May 9th, 2014

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.
