Jesu & Sun Kil Moon - Jesu / Sun Kil Moon (2016)

Cuddly Koz is back! Yap, with probably the first of a dozen new albums this year, here under his Sun Kil Moon moniker, he collabs with Brit experimental act Jesu.

The LP dropped January 21, 2016 on Koz's Caldo Verde Records and Rough Trade.

The album also features an array of stellar indie guest .. the likes of Will Oldham aka Bonnie "Prince" Billy, members of Low, Rachel Goswell of Slowdive and Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse. Jesu as well as Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth.

The album has come from the long-standing relationship between Jesu front man Justin Broadrick and Mark Kozelek.

Koz first approached Broadrick in 2007, about a release through his label, after being impressed by a live performance in San Francisco. In 2009 Jesu released Opiate Sun through Caldo Verde Records and later the same year Broadrick interviewed Kozelek for the Caldo Verde website. 

In 2013, Kozelek covered Broadrick's band Godflesh's song "Like Rats" and in 2014 directly referenced Broadrick and Godflesh in "The Possum"; the opening track from Sun Kil Moon's 2015 album Universal Themes.
