Introducing: Zola Jesus

I stumbled across Zola Jesus a couple of weeks ago, completely by accident as usual, now I'm pretty obsessed, not actually obsessed but I've listened to Zola Jesus a lot this week compared to say Double Daggers who I love but they've gone on the back burner for now. She'll will be playing a good few shows in Texas next week so I'm going to try and catch one or two. Her new EP 'Stridulum' is out March 9th and can be bought from her website next week Buy from here.
