Lest we forget, Jaar and his touring guitarist Dave Harrington have already released an album of sorts this year, uploading a full-length remix version of Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories under the Daftside moniker. Psychic, however, takes the honour of being their first gimmick-free album. In keeping with 2011’s Darkside EP, Psychic is a saturnine collection of glowering post-rock and downbeat electronica. The eight-track record promises to navigate “rock’s cosmic outer edges” with nods to house and techno – a fair synopsis, on first listen.
The pair are streaming the album in full over at the Other People, Jaar’s new subscription-only “serial label”. Subscribers to the website will also be able to download the album right now, a week before its official release date. Head here to stream/cop the record.
Psychic will be released on October 8 via Other People/Matador.
