Why, as a music blogger, do I feel like I’m always the last to know about great new music? That’s a conversation for another day. Just finished my fourth listen through the new Zola Jesus EP, it’s spectacular. Any fans of Jesus & Mary Chain, Joy Division, etc will dig this. Call it dark-fi, goth pop, whatever you want. Zola Jesus (Nika Danilova) combines a punch you in the jaw powerful voice, and songs that build energy from the dark to make the perfect soundtrack to a late night drive.
