Jesu is an experimental rock band formed in 2003 by Justin Broadrick following the breakup of Godflesh. Jesu was the name of the last song on the final Godflesh release, Hymns, and Broadrick decided to adopt it as the name of his new project.
Jesu's sound is heavily layered and textured, drawing from and incorporating an eclectic mix of influences, ranging from ambient music, post-metal and drone doom, to shoegazing, downtempo and industrial music. Their recent releases have been described as "avant-pop" and avant-garde doom.
Why Are We Not Perfect, is a CDEP that will feature the Jesu songs originally only available on the Eluvium split vinyl album, as well as new two new remixes. Daymare will release the album in Japan, with an additional third remix not available on the American release.
