jarl is erik jarl, one half of the moody power electronics outfit, IRM. this is apparently his 5th release. whereas IRM hit you with huge, expansive, suffocating waves of sound and paint peeling vocals. jarl travels a divergent path (at least on this record), creating some rather soothing, hypnotic soundscapes. music you can fall asleep to, at least somewhat, as there are still harsh edges of noise and feedback scattered about on this record..
