JESU & SUN KIL MOON 'Jesu / Sun Kil Moon'
Collaboration between Sun Kil Moon (acoustic folk project of Mark Kozelek from Red house Painters) and British experimentalist Jesu (Justin Broadrick of Godflesh). The eponymous full length was first hinted at by Sun Kil Moon frontman Mark Kozelek in an interview from early 2015, then later confirmed by Jesu's Justin Broderick later that year. Formed from a long-standing relationship between the two frontmen, Jesu/Sun Kil Moon finds Kozelek experimenting with his voice - yelling, howling, and at times screaming his signature stream of consiousness style lyrics over the crunchy distorted guitars and soft drums that are Broderick's forte. The entire listen remains reflective and emotional throughout, with a little help from an all-star cast of guest musicians including Will Oldham, members of Low, Slowdive's Rachel Goswell, and Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock.
