Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick Releases New JK Flesh Album “Sewer Bait”

Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick has released a new JK Flesh album titled “Sewer Bait.” The effort is currently available to purchase via Bandcamp.

“Sewer Bait” Track Listing:

01. “Soaked to the Skin”
02. “Flushed Away”
03. “Sewerbait”
04. “Cruiser”
05. “Crawler”
06. “In the Drain”
07. “Gutter Level”
08. “Washed Up”

Kevin Martin (The Bug) shared a rundown of the record:

“The sixth album from JK Flesh, this album is a Slo-mo, Slo-fi, Sewer tech journey into utter gutter level filth. Overdriven, corroded, corrupted and absolutely blasted, it contains so many essential elements of clubland low life, but yet manages to remain beautifully original whilst pushing all levels deep into the red until it hurts in the best possible way. Anyone hooked on Andy Stott’s dirtiest works, Porter Ricks deepest explorations or Techno Animal’s speaker punishing grooves will find addictive nourishment within these relentlessly distorted heavyweight grooves…. Not so much hard as completely f*ckin brutal, the master stroke from Justin Broadrick however, is taking his raw materials and feeding them militantly into the dub chamber.

This is like a wholesale destruction of Techno, 4/4 for people too wasted and strung out to give a f*ck about dancefloors, yet compelling enough and magnetic enough to completely insist upon fully body hypnotism in an undersized room with an oversized rig.

The album’s title track sounds like Drum & Bass don Digital or the peak of the Metalheadz label dragged down into hell for the ultimate bad rave trip, whilst ‘Crawler’ could be Killing Joke, jammin with Regis and his aggro allies from Birmingham Techno’s under appreciated discography, deep in a warehouse warzone.”

Funk commented:

“Helping facilitate bringing this world to life through music and the amazing artists’ visions that were selected was an honor of a lifetime. I am of the opinion when people think of Dungeons & Dragons that there is a preconceived underscore of what these worlds might sound like. With this bold return to Spelljammer we were excited to push the boundaries deep into Wildspace, working with artists from diverse musical backgrounds that could challenge what music in the multiverse of the world’s greatest roleplaying game might sound like. Each artist was given a character or plot prompt from the storyline, then challenged to write an original composition based on Light of Xaryxis. We hope you enjoy the result!”

Periphery’s Jake Bowen has premiered a new song titled “I Am Error.” This track features Good Tiger’s Elliot Coleman and it will appear on Bowen’s new album “The Daily Sun,” which is set to be released on October 1. Bowen commented:

“I’ve known Elliot for 14 years and we’ve always wanted to work together on a song or project. Elliot has such a unique style and he’s fronted some amazing bands. We’ve been working on songs together for a really long time and nothing has really stuck until now – almost like we were waiting for the right time and the right song. Another cool thing about this track is that it was done completely remotely so for me it’s really special to see a song come together that way since I usually prefer working in person.”
