When electronic producers meld their efforts with those of more traditional, pop-oriented artists, at best you get the Postal Service. At worst, you're stuck with Skrillex and the Doors. Darkside, the collaboration between New York-based musicians Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington, falls securely on the Give Up side of this divide. The pair's debut album, Psychic (released last year on Matador), finds that sweet spot where Jaar's downtempo beats and Harrington's jazzy guitar playing and moody singing complement each other, creating a delicate warmth that pools out from the songs like a burbling oil reserve. The duo are joined on this run by High Water, a fellow sound explorer who brings elements of improvisational jazz into his roughly stitched-together dub electronics. ROBERT HAM
