We recently posted a track from Jesu-frontman-turned-solo-artist Justin K. Broadrick (a.k.a. Pale Sketcher), and now Ghostly has offered us all another taste. “Can I Go Now (Gone Version)” is the first official single from Jesu: Pale Sketches Demixed, and is certainly the closest thing to an uplifting song that we’ve yet to hear from Broadrick. Angelic synth tones cut through harmonious ambience, floating next to his simple, crunchy rhythms and the subtle vocal melodies the singer vocoded into unintelligible statements. From what we’ve heard thus far, Pale Sketcher has created a style not unlike the soundscapes from past M83 albums, but while leaning heavier on the dark, industrial nature of his lengthy background in droning metal bands.
