Nicolas Jaar - "And I Say" ft. Scout Larue and Will Epstein

Not feeling the vocals by Scout Larue (daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis) of this new track by Nicolas Jaar. But it's Nicolas Jaar and he's my man these days so I am sharing.


The guys in Bad Bad Not Good are on their way to something big. They mix jazz and hip hop in a way that has NOT been done yet. You can get a bunch of their stuff for free over at their bandcamp.
