Nicolas Jaar & Theater Roosevelt – “The Ego”

%name Nicolas Jaar & Theater Roosevelt   The Ego

Nicolas Jaar is a bit of a chameleon. From remixing Cat Power to teaming up with Sasha Spielberg for a Leonard Cohen cover, it’s evident that Jaar likes to experiment. But more importantly, he’s able to really embody whatever mood he’s trying to channel in his music. His latest comes in the form of “The Ego,” featuring a voice known as Theater Roosevelt, whose distorted, rumbling, Jamaican-accented voice recites bits and pieces from the 2012 election. Listen to Nicolas Jaar’s intricate, dark offering below.
