I was listening to Nicolas Jaar's Space is Only Noise when "Keep Me There" came on. The song opens with two low, kinda dopey voices harmonizing on a simple melody, "duh, duh, duh-nuh-dee-duh." The thought passed through my mind that the languid electronica track would make a nice soundtrack to some druggy montage in a movie existing somewhere at the center of a venn diagram of The Big Lebowski, Pineapple Express, and Trainspotting.
- Nicolas Jaar: Keep Me There
Which got me thinking of soundtracks, which made me first think of the song "Oh Yeah" by Yello, which appears in the Ferris Bueller soundtrack, which then reminded me of George Kranz's bizarre "Dim Daa Daa," from the Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo soundtrack. "Keep Me There" feels like a sleepy descendent of these songs, especially "Dim Daa Daa"—it's like Kranz and Jaar had the same idea, but Kranz was buzzing hard on cocaine and Jaar is lost in a haze of weed.
