Nicolas Jaar certainly seems to enjoy a good collaboration, as demonstrated by his work with the likes of Scout Laure, Dave Harrington, and others. For April 19th’s Record Store Day, Jaar is revisiting his partnership with Sasha “Yes-My-Dad’s-The-Director” Spielberg as the group Just Friends. While their new track “Don’t Tell Me” will be available on 10″ vinyl for RSD, the song is streaming now at Jaar’s Other People website. It’s a glitchy minimalist R&B number that relies more on sleek and subtle transitions than complicated lyricism or encompassing beats. Take a listen here.
