Premiere: Catamaran - Pastels

MJ MJ Records is the perfect home for Catamaran, boat and berthing jokes aside. Catamaran's dramatic atmospheres and crystalline beats seem entirely at home on the label's roster, contrasting nicely with the more maximalist sensibility on their recent album with Yalls. At nearly 48 minutes long, it even has equal heft and at least much internal variety - despite the unity of a consistently restrained beat and relaxed synths, Catamaran punctures its contemplativeness periodically with a heavier lean on the keys and a sense of deliberation that comes across in frequent moments of pleasant artistry as in "Pastels", though I'll concede the name may seem alarming to some.
