Album Review

Zola Jesus – “Spoils, The” – [Sacred Bones Records]

humana   6/6/2010   A Library, CD

The greatest strength on this first full-length release from Wisconsin-based Zola Jesus is the hearty voice of singer Nika Roza Danilova. The lyrics are mostly unintelligible, although this is in keeping with the hazy, nocturnal, often gothic industrial noisiness of this CD. They songs get progressively lighter as the album progresses, kind of like rising from the dead, which is a nice surprise.
