10TH ANNIVERSARY OF ‘PSYCHIC’
EXPANDED DIGITAL EDITION OUT TODAY
INCLUDING THREE BONUS TRACKS
Matador Records celebrates the 10th anniversary of DARKSIDE’s debut album, ‘Psychic’, originally released on October 4th, 2013.
To mark the occasion, Matador have assembled an expanded digital edition of the record with three bonus tracks. This includes two era-appropriate b-sides – “Gone Too Soon” and “What They Say” – and a live version of “Paper Trails” recorded during the group’s 2023 European tour.
DARKSIDE is an American rock band formed in Providence, Rhode Island in 2011 by Chilean electronic musician Nicolás Jaar and American multi-instrumentalist Dave Harrington. Psychic met with critical acclaim upon release, with The New York Times labeling it “the soundtrack to a lost David Lynch sci-fi movie” and Pitchfork calling the album, “a declaration of psychedelic liberation.”
The record was a springboard for the duo’s immersive and improvisatory live shows, which toured throughout the globe until a hiatus beginning in 2014. Six years later, DARKSIDE resumed activity, releasing a second album, ‘Spiral’.
Now, the band has expanded to a trio, featuring Harrington, Jaar, and drummer Tlacael Esparza. In June, DARKSIDE released ‘Live From Spiral House’, a set of recordings documenting rehearsals for the group’s return to the stage. In the coming months, the complete run of 2023 concerts will be made available to stream and download. More to come.
