This post contains three imperative links for those chomping at the bit for new Zola Jesus: First, make sure you’ve downloaded “Vessel,” the first MP3 from her forthcoming Conatus LP. Then read Cole’s great Progress Report with Nika as she talks about humility and ambition, arranging string sections on her new album, wanting to play MSG, and moving beyond merely “goth” classifications. And ultimately, check out another new Conatus song performed live in the studio. It’s called “Avalanche,” and it’s streaming (and downloadable) over at Daytrotter.
Conatus is out 10/4 via Sacred Bones.
