JESU: Opiate Sun: CDEP

All of the records released by Jesu have been thick and syrupy, but the past few recordings are so crushingly beautiful, slow and plaintive, heartbreaking, and sublime, that they command full attention. I’ve found a few of these songs come up on my ipod shuffle—once pulling over on the highway to finish the song, “Losing Streak,” while staring at a red sun setting beyond the West Maui mountain. This EP captured that moment perfectly.
