Song of the Day 02/26/12: Nicolas Jaar - "Space Is Only Noise If You Can See"
Nicolas Jaar is an electronic musician that produces ambient, sparse music that is totally weird, but is just plain cool. In contrast to last year's James Blake, Nicolas Jaar's take on dub-infused art pop feels a bit more lighthearted and playful. "Space Is Only Noise If You Can See" bounces along with it's vintage drum samples, analogue synth sound, and Jaar's low awkward voice. It's not for everyone, but there's just something about this song that I find really charming. This song is from his 2011 full-length album Space Is Only Noise, but the artist also recently put out a two-song EP called Don't Break My Love that you can stream here.
