Zola Jesus – Daytrotter Session [MP3]

16.08.11, Words by: Charlie Jones

Zola Jesus’ every recorded move demands attention. She’s got a new album due out in September, ‘Contaus’, the follow-up to last year’s ‘Stridulum II’, and so is back filling our ears and minds with her blackly atmospheric, heart-raising way with sound and voice. She’s recorded a live session for Daytrotter, from which you can now download two tracks, Avalanche (from the aforementioned forthcoming album) and ‘Stridulum II’ highlight Trust Me. Both sound immediate and vital when played out live, swooning strings, roughened drums, and that breath-stopping voice Nika Danilova possesses make for a mesmerizing listen, which you can now download and stream below.
