Nicolas Jaar & Theatre Roosevelt - "The Ego"

For reasons known only to him, the dubbed-out electronic music wunderkind dropped a new track, credited to himself and the presumably nonexistent Theatre Roosevelt, over the holiday weekend, posting it on his Soundcloud with only this message: “Teddy’s ghost wishes you a happy thanksgiving!” The song is a blooping, playful thump with a bunch of vocal samples manipulated and distorted until they sound like George Lucas’s idea of Jamaican patois. Download the track below.


Nicolas Jaar’s 2011 Space Is Only Noise remains a great album, and I wish he’d buckle down on a proper follow-up, even though his stray tracks are always fun.
