Nicolas Jaar: "With Just One Glance"

Kind of a bitch to research the actual deets behind these tunes today, what with Wikipedia going black in protest of SOPA/PIPA (really don't know what Wiki has against those delicious Mexican bread rolls you fill with honey), and Nicolas Jaar's minimalist website isn't much of a help.  So yeah, homeboy runs a record label Clown & Sunset and the vocals here are provided by Scout Larue, daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. Personally I find the vocals to be the weak link here; Larue's voice seems capable yet mediocre and her cadence has an overly simplistic, almost schoolyard rhyme to it that isn't all that compelling.  But Jaar's production more than makes up for Larue's shortcomings and after a couple of listens I find myself not even paying that much attention to the vocals anyway.
