Though it was only announced three days ago, Nicolas Jaar’s new album Sirens is out at the end of this week – and it’s streaming in full on his website right now.
Sirens is Jaar’s second full-length album, and his first since 2011’s Space Is Only Noise. In the intervening years, the NYC-based Chilean electronic musician released the soundtrack album Pomegranates and issued a collaborative long-player with Dave Harrington under the name Darkside.
The six-track Sirens is a gorgeous, slow-burning record that’s described in a press release as the artist’s most “topically cohesive and politically-minded record to date”. It’s streaming on Channel 333 of The Network, Jaar’s ambitious new online project. The stream also includes a bonus track titled “Wildflower”.
