Jatun: The Mass of Portland

Jatun: The Mass of Portland

Jatun never sleeps. That's a good thing for fans. Give back to Scott Worley's relentless output by donating (or at least listening) to The Mass of Portland, a new, free or pay-what-you-want Jatun release. From Scott: "1 full-length album served up as 1 song, 47:17 long. 16 tracks comprised of guitars, analog & digital synths, homebrew programs on the Nintendo DS, iOS apps, vinyl record samples, field recordings and tape loops. All tracks were recorded in one take from beginning to end. I recorded most of the album in one day, and then finished the rest over the course of the weekend. This is a free / pay-what-you-want release. All proceeds go to funding equipment used for playing shows and recording material for Jatun."

“Ends of June is a genuinely terrific album, a collection of 12 heartfelt, largely acoustic, quiet bedroom pop songs that does in fact sound kinda like a cross between Low, the La's and Love, although to be fully descriptive, their name would also have to mention Belle & Sebastian, Neutral Milk Hotel and Sebadoh.” -All Music Guide
