Jesu’s New Sister: Pale Sketcher

It seems Jesu’s days of infusing electronic elements into its otherwise guitar-laden sound are over. Justin Broadrick has decided to distance these two sounds in order to explore each one more¬†extensively. Jesu will remain guitar-based, but the electronica side of Jesu has splintered off to form a new project called Pale Sketcher. Pale Sketcher will be Broadrick’s new outlet for his “Jesu electronica”.

Jesu, Broadrick says, will be exclusively guitar-based from now on, which is a little bit disappointing. I’m not really worried, since pretty much everything Broadrick releases is good, but, since I’ve always liked the mix of the two sounds in Jesu, I’m a little bummed about the split.

You can hear two full Pale Sketcher tracks from the forthcoming Jesu: Pale Sketches Demixed album on the official Pale Sketcher Facebook page.

In other Broadrick news, Continuum Recyclings Volume Two,¬†his remixes of Steven Wilson and Dirk Serries’ Continuum project, is now available for pre-order from Tonefloat. This is a vinyl-only release and is limited to 500 copies on colored 180-gram vinyl. As of now it’s set for a June 8 release.

You can listen to excerpts from Continuum Recyclings Volume Two on the Continuum Myspace page.
