Earlier this week I posted “Gravy Train” from Nicolas Jaar’s Essential Mix, and today I give you another listed track from the collaboration meld of Just Friends, aka Nicolas Jaar and Sasha Spielberg. Titled “Avalanche,” this song is one among 12 included in Jaar’s strangely curious compilation, The Prism.
While the original rendition of Leonard Cohens “Avalanche” is embedded with soulful influence and somber requisition, this re-imagination is more elevated, with hauntingly stunning vocal measures and hypnotic beat placement. The subdued sound reverberations capture your ears while the ambient instrumentals massage your temples and send you to embarking on another Jaar journey. Now, take a listen to this version and let it enchant you with audible indulgence.
