zola jesus

Now i’ll be totally truthful in saying that this caught us clearly on the spin and near knocked us off our listening pedestal. A new thing from Zola Jesus ripped from a future happening via Sacred Bones entitled ‘Okovi’, this is ‘exhumed’. Emerging from a dark place, suppressed as though an emotionally stark and stricken primal cry found fracturing, fighting and frightened by a world unrecognised, amid the harrowing cast of apocalyptic shadows a turbulent drama unfolds pressed upon fidgeting brutal beats and a scratched neo classical framing whose abrupt schizoid urgency squirms between moments of crushed crestfallen resignation and beautifully brooding euphoria.
