Listen to a JESU remix of JULIEN BAKER

I didn’t see this coming. Julien Baker has enlisted, of all people, Justin Broadrick for a remix. Under the guise of his Jesu project, Broadrick has turned his attention to ‘Favor’, originally released on Baker’s third album, ‘Little Oblivions’, earlier this year. There’s actually a whole EP of remixes coming out early next month but Broadrick’s effort, which slathers dense, […]

Albums of the Year- 2020

It’s been a tough year… No, that feels like an understatement. Worst year ever? Maybe. It’s somehow felt like the longest and the shortest 12 months in human history, a hurry-up-and-wait of terror and tension and “what the fuck is going on”. A calendar of unprecedented chaos.

JESU- ‘Terminus’

It had been so long. Ok, so nobody is calling Justin Broadrick a slacker.

And he hadn’t even neglected Jesu really. Fresh mixes of old records keep […]

Watch a JESU live video

Holy shit. Considering just how rarely Jesu mastermind Justin Broadrick performs live, there’s a chance I will never ever see the band play. But the video below is not a terrible substitute. Back in November 2017, Broadrick teamed up with Nothing and Prurient (Dominick Fernow) for a one-off collaboration as part of the 20th anniversary celebrations for Fernow’s record label, […]

JESU- ‘Every Day I Get Closer to the Light from Which I Came’

Jesu change. Since 2004 the band’s mastermind, former Napalm Death and Godflesh member Justin Broadrick, has gradually, granularly, slowly but surely distorted his post metal sound to incorporate elements of electronica, shoegaze, and, whisper it, melody. It makes sense. Even the project’s earliest output favoured texture, mood and feeling, over any real definition. This time though, something is different. There […]
