Why Are We Not Perfect, the new one from Jesu, kicks off with a clipped, reverb-y drum beat that made me wonder for a second if Justin Broadrick's been devouring dubstep, then it gets even more surprising as the first track is probably the poppiest thing we've ever heard him do.

Why Are We Not Perfect, the new one from Jesu, kicks off with a clipped, reverb-y drum beat that made me wonder for a second if Justin Broadrick's been devouring dubstep, then it gets even more surprising as the first track is probably the poppiest thing we've ever heard him do. It really doesn't sound like the Jesu stuff I've heard before at all but that's not a negative by any means, it's a pretty slow burner built on sheets of glacial synths and glockenspiels with the guitar noise buried in the mix. I don't know if the vocals are really needed here though.. The style of them remind me a little of some of Mogwai's vocal tracks, something like 'R U Still In 2 It?' The others are cool too, all of them have a very lightly dancey almost trip-hop sort of feel to them. These are the tracks that featured on the split 12" they did with Eluvium, plus two alternatve versions so if you missed out on that one here's your opportunity.
