Nicolas Jaar is certainly a multi-faced musician if there ever was one. The Chilean-American producer is well-known in the club world for his various dance 12″ EPs he put out from 2008 to 2011 but has been moving in a more explorative direction, performing a five-hour improvisational concert at the MoMA PS1 and releasing a large volume of experimental recordings through his label, Other People. Now, on Friday, the eclectic artist has just released his acclaimed 2015 album ‘Pomegrates’ on Vinyl for the the first time ever.
The album was originally released digitally via Nicolas Jaar’s imprint, Other People, and is an unofficial rescoring of the 1969 Russian film ‘The Color Of Pomegranates’. The vinyl has been released via the London-based label Mana and was remastered by the Berlin institution D&M. The new ‘Pomegranates’ vinyl also includes a new sleeve designed by David Rudnick, who worked on the recent Oneohtrix Point Never LP.
Listen to ‘Pomegranates’ below, now available on vinyl via Mana.
