The Groove Nashville

CD in eco-friendly vinyl-style gatefold wallet. Professionally manufactured and packaged in clear re-sealable eco-bag. Fifteen years ago, prolific UK innovator Justin K Broadrick - who rose to fame as guitarist for Napalm Death and founder of seminal industrial group Godflesh - began once again doing what he does best: experimenting. Originally intending to create sketches for his project Jesu, Broadrick realized his new form of beguiling and hypnotic compositions didn't fit Jesu's signature guitar-noise assault. This was something entirely new. Thus, Pale Sketcher was born. Written and recorded primarily between 2009-2013, Golden Skin was originally slated for release on Richard D. James' (Aphex Twin) Rephlex Records prior to it shuttering, and it evokes fond memories of the height of experimentation in IDM/braindance while still resonating heavily with the here and now. Unearthed and completed by Broadrick specifically for it's unveiling on GIVE/TAKE, the full-length album reveals itself as a devastatingly beautiful and essential new entry in the artist's repertoire. Dripping with smart style, shimmering electronics, and complex dream-like vocal sampling, Golden Skin propels the listener through a truly heavy, affecting experience, bordering on ecstatic, from the LP's melancholy, yet hyper-breaks driven opener "Today," to the minimal and dusty trip-hop-laden finale "Hymn for Light." The first Pale Sketcher output in years. Genre: Electronic / IDM
