Last Friday’s DARKSIDE session for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic went so well that we thought hey, why not do that again, but further north? And so it is that Nicolas and Dave will be going on the air live at Seattle’s KEXP in just under half an hour (2pm EST/11am PST, to be exact). Listen online at KEXP.org, or in Seattle at 90.3FM.
Today on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, for the first time ever, the duo of Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington (pka (DARKSIDE) will be performing live on US radio. I’m sitting in the control room right now as they run through songs from their debut full-length, Psychic, and trust me, you don’t want to miss this. In Los Angeles, the spot on your radio dial is 89.9FM, and you can also listen online worldwide at KCRW.org. They go on at 2:15PM EST/11:15AM PST, so you have plenty of time to mentally prepare yourself.
