Since the release of his album-in-a-box The Prism earlier this year (now graciously available for digital download), Nicolas Jaar has presumably holed himself up in a futuristic underground laboratory and conducted some musical mad science into the follow-up – at least, based on the first track we’ve heard from him in a while, “The Ego,” which features some heavily chopped-and-screwed vocals from, uh, Theodore Roosevelt (credited by the always-intuitive Jaar as Theatre Roosevelt). Before you pass it off as weird novelty, take a listen – Jaar’s made that vocal sample into more of a beat effect than a lyric and streamlined the whole thing into a vibey, haunted banger.
