12 O'Clock Track: Devastatingly heavy shoegaze from Jesu

  • Jesu
After last month's amazing Godflesh show, I've been diving headfirst into revisiting the rest of Justin Broadrick's catalog. One of my favorites has always been the first Jesu LP, released on Hydrahead ten years ago, and having a reason to spin it again has been great. The entire record is dark, brooding, beautiful, and heavy as all hell. Punishing guitars paired with ethereal synths and deadpan, personal vocals makes for something that sounds like SunnO))) crossing paths with My Bloody Valentine. Today's 12 O'Clock Track is the nearly-ten-minute song "Friends are Evil" from Jesu, and it sounds just as powerful today as it did a decade ago.
