There’s nothing quite like Nico Jaar when he hits top form. Nothing else sounds even remotely similar.
We feel bad for not getting to grips with his new LP ’Sirens’ sooner (we did try and listen in when the exclusive web stream went live but kept getting distracted and couldn’t skip forwards or back) so it’s nice to finally find a moment to let it all sink in.
At six tracks long, the track list is obviously super short for a traditional LP. Then again, when did Jaar ever do anything to tradition? It doesn’t take long to sink into his world, around the 4-minute mark of 11-minute long album opener ‘Killing Time’ we’d say. From there on in it is everything and more; a truly wonderful addition to the world and his universe.
