“Mammoth swells and wordless vertigo, heavenly fades snap, crackle and pop in Jatun’s stellar noise fest. “ -Maximum Ink

“Huge waves of amplified guitar and electronic melodies to keep your bliss levels peaking in the red.” -OMG Vinyl

Jatun:

“Other Electricities delivers once again! Take all the good things you like about M83, add some Album Leaf, throw in some delicate vocals, record it and play it back through Soundwave (Transformer's reference guys) and you have Jatun.” -Insound

“‘Ghost and Grey,’ is one of the best songs of the year with its sweet shoegazing ambience, electronic beats, synths, and catchy vocals. The rest of the album is pretty much in the same vein. So if you’d like to hear a 65daysofstatic/Hammock hybrid with My Bloody Valentine-esque vocals, then check out Jatun.” -Decoy

When Jatun's eponymous debut dropped in 2007, dream-pop enthusiasts and headphone purists alike were astounded by its thoughtfully detailed songs and meticulous textures. Subtle, distinct variations embedded in teeming walls of sound egged them on for a louder-than-loud listen. And there was just no denying the nuanced cycles of swarming and disintegrating buzz; conduits for robot melodies. However, there's always room for more depth and texture. With Blanket of Ash, Jatun offers up another dose of clandestine vocals, heavy layers and unmistakable intensity: A vinyl-only collection of metallic drone and spacejunk beats for the truly frequency-dependent. Jatun is Scott Worley (Portland, OR), Blanket of Ash is his second album on Other Electricities and is available on limited edition vinyl.
