Nicolas Jaar has spent the last four years recording his new EP. It was a wait that left fans more than eager for the return of his heady electronica-Jaar's last solo release came in 2011. Now it's arrived. In an interview with the Guardian in 2012-halfway through the recording process-Jaar agreed that his music had taken on "a religious quality". "Church music is what I'm making" said the auteur. The two track EP, entitled Nymphs II, proves the description accurate. The heavenly songs, entitled 'The three sides of Audrey and why she's all alone now' and 'No one is looking at U (feat. Lorraine)' can be enjoyed below. The EP available through Jaar's own label, Other People.
