Hear an Interview with Darkside Tonight on Echoes.
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. Tonight on Echoes we’ll revisit our interview with Darkside’s Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington.
Guitarist Dave Harrington has just released a solo EP, Before This There Was One Heart But a Thousand Thoughts .
Check out their live set in Paris last year. And turn it up.
