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 collection of metallic drone and spacejunk beats for the truly frequency-dependent.
