Brooklyn-based DJ/Producer Nicolas Jaar is pleased to announce a forthcoming compilation on his multidisciplinary label Clown & Sunset Aesthetics. Entitled Don't Break My Love, the "Prism" takes its name from an earlier cut by the electronic music wunderkind; it takes its form from a canonical polyhedron, the cube. The aluminum block appears to comes in at roughly 2” – 2.5” 3, based on the images, with two standard 1/8” (3.5mm) headphone jacks on opposite sides, which also serve as its USB-charging input. The face is printed with the Prism's title and the cryptic message, "a collection of lost memories / from clown & sunset," while the unmarked play/pause/ff/rew buttons are on the reverse.
It's unclear as to whether the term "Prism" refers to the palm-sized audio format in general or this release in particular; Pitchfork notes the cube's affinity to Playbutton releases (as seen at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar).

While Don't Break My Love will put a slight, possibly-cube-shaped dent in your wallet at $40, you can download Jaar's early (and quite phenomenal, IMHO) Edits LP for free here.
