      Chilean producer Nicolas Jaar has shared an alternate version of his 2016 LP Sirens featuring a track not on the album, "Wildflowers." The newly-released "Network Version" of the album is what he originally streamed on his Other People online radio network before Sirens was officially released on September 30.

      "Wildflowers" appears here as the second track, and pairs a hearty dose of fuzz and fog with a repetitive, bluesy progression. While the spacey meditation rests on a heartbeat-like drum pattern for most of its duration, it eventually dissolves into noise.

      The official LP version of Sirens, released on the artist's own Other People imprint, was THUMP's seventh favorite album of 2016.

      Jaar will perform at Coachella 2017 alongside The xx, Radiohead, and more.
