Sun Kil Moon & Jesu Are Making An Album Together

Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek may come off as a curmudgeonly bastard, but it’s not like he doesn’t have friends. He totally has friends! For instance: Ben Gibbard! Also: A guy who used to be in Napalm Death! Justin K. Broadrick, who co-founded Napalm Death as a teenager, went on to make emotive deep-crunch industrial… More »

Mark Kozelek – “Like Rats” (Godflesh Cover) Video

Mark Kozelek has delivered a catalog’s worth of unexpected covers — most famously dedicating entire albums to covers of Modest Mouse and Bon Scott-era AC/DC, respectively, but he’s crafted trademark variations of everything from Wings to Genesis to Ace Frehley to Will Oldham to “Send In The Clowns” — so it’s no surprise that hi… More »

Jesu – “Birth Day” (Stereogum Premiere)

Like 2009’s Opiate Sun EP, Justin Broadrick’s next Jesu collection, Ascension, is coming out via Mark Kozelek’s Caldo Verde. This new 10-song offering, his third proper LP amid all those EPs and splits, is his first “traditional” longplayer since 2007’s Conqueror: Remember, 2009’s Infinity was one 50-minute song. I reiterated Broadrick’s resume when posting HeartMore »

Jesu – “Annul” (Stereogum Premiere)

The more metal, shoegaze, various “posts,” and electronics intersect, the more obvious it is ex-Napalm Death/Godflesh/Techno Animal Justin K Broadrick’s been at the forefront of something even before he started Jesu seven years ago. Of all his projects, though — the older Final, more recent Pale Sketcher included — Jesu crystallizes his personalized blend of… More »

Stereogum Does CMJ: Jesu/Torche @ Blender Theater at Gramercy, NYC 10/20/07

Since a superb self-titled 2005 debut, original Napalm Death guitarist/Godflesh founder Justin K. Broadrick has been refining Jesu’s increasingly honed catalog of “shoegaze metal” (even if he chaffs at the term), dispatching heavy fuzz with a fragile inseam. Dude’s recorded some of the most gorgeously crunchy albums of any given year — including 2007’s ConquerorMore »
