As mentioned, this seems to be a heavy switch for a man mired in a past of metal and weaned out on the heavier side of post rock and as has now become the case, these splits are turning out great pairings of artists working outside of the bounds of their normal constraints. Here's to hoping that Temporary Residence and Hydra Head keep up the series.

Jesu/Eluvium - Split 12"
Matthew Cooper lets his cinematic side play out on a side length track that more than proves his merit once again. The real surprise here is how light, and beat oriented the Jesu tracks are. For a man who's spent a great deal of time in a thick metallic
haze, this kind of clarity can make one check the label twice. A great foray into the bowels of shoegaze and a taste of the changes that were to come in Broadrick's music.
