Nicholas Jaar & The Price of Ego

http://soundcloud.com/clownandsunset/nicolas-jaar-theatre-roosevelt

It’s hard to make out much of a message in the track Nicolas Jaar just dropped on Soundcloud. Issuing absurdly deep proclamations, some easier to pick out than others. The opening line, “The American people aren’t buying what he’s selling the people” seems to be a quote from a recent interview Barack Obama gave to Rolling Stone where he talked about his one-time opponent Mitt Romney’s failure to connect with the country’s priorities. Elsewhere, the “domestic agenda” and the price of ego crop up. Lecture aside, it’s one of the most lighthearted sounding tracks Jaar’s released in ages.
