Nicolas Jaar [Circus Company//Rhode Island]

Nicolas Jaar's new LP "Space Is Only Noise," out on now Circus Company, is something confusing and emotion-laden; propelling yet alien. I'm not gonna lie, I haven't listened to the whole thing. Freaked me out. But, one thing is for sure: this work is art worth exploration, especially coming from a boy who started making music at the age of 14 and is currently a 20-year-old student at Brown. Here are my two favorite tracks off the LP. The first is a discombobulated hip-hop beat verging on lounge and the second, a riff which turns into a pulsing gallop beneath swirling kicks and eerily funky vocal cuts.
