Zola Christ Pose

I love being struck dumb by a beautiful woman wielding the weapon of music. It happens on a fairly regular basis for me - what can I say, Im a romanticist at heart (...ahem...) Zola Jesus is my current favourite. The pseudonym for Nika Roza Danilova, also known for her cathartic work with Former Ghosts, Zola Jesus offers moody meanderings interspersed with shimmering atmospherics, booming bass drums and her iconic voice coming out of the ether. Her Stridulum EP is a cracker, a genuine step up from her two albums The Spoils (Out on Sacred Bones) and Tsar Bomba (on Troubleman Unlimited), both out last year. Zola Jesus - the siren that will lure my ship onto the rocks...
