Zola Jesus doesn't sleep. We all imagine her as a vampire creature and taking into consideration the amount of work she puts out (apart from the very talked about Stridilum EP she's doing a degree, collaborates in projects such as Former Ghosts or Nika and Rory and is about to put out Stridilum II and the Night single in some weeks) she probably is.
And her release of the week is a collaborative EP with L.A. Vampires, another project from Pocahaunted's Amanda. The 7 tracks EP came out this week on a limited edition of 600 on Not Not Fun. The stuff here is spooky and weird, closer to Zola's first stuff or Pocahaunted's experimental approach to music. I would recommend to check it out before getting it if you just discovered Zola thanks to Night as you could have a surprise. But I don't want to scare you; although it's ethereal and more Lo-FI than her latest stuff, it's another interesting bunch of sounds and songs you should give a try too and discover how they get close to dub and blues in some amazing tracks such as Searching or Vous.
