Hear an Interview with Darkside in Echoes Podcast.
This past October I got to see the band Darkside at the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit. They played before an impressively large audience in the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, considering they only had one album out, Psychic. They’re a band that favors shadows, standing in twin cones of low, smoke filled light, delivering snarling guitar leads over throbbing electronic drums and sequences like a pong game on acid. They recalled the German band Can, with their motoric grooves and free improvisation, but brought a modern DJ sensibility to their set. It was like a rave in a bomb shelter. Hear Darkside’s Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington talk about it in the Echoes Podcast.
Check out their live set in Paris last year. And turn it up.
