Mark Kozelek and Justin K Broadrick are longtime friends and associates, and Sun Kil Moon and Jesu, Broadrick’s genre-blurring shoegaze-metal band, are putting out a collaborative album early next year. Will Oldham, Low, and Rachel Goswell will also appear on the record, and its first track, the quintessentially Kozelek-sounding “America’s Most Wanted Mark Kozelek & John Dillinger,” has arrived tonight. It mostly sounds like a Sun Kil Moon song, albeit with some added post-rock grandeur, buzzing synths, and occasional ambient interludes courtesy of Broadrick. Listen over on Sun Kil Moon’s official website here.
Kozelek sang about seeing Broadrick’s other band Godflesh live on his song “The Possum,” and he covered Godflesh’s “Like Rats” back in 2013. He’s also popped up at a few Godflesh shows recently, fittingly performing “Like Rats” with them. Watch some footage of that below.
Jesu/Sun Kil Moon is out 1/22 on Caldo Verde/Rough Trade.
