Coming off two killer
7"'s and on the verge of releasing the excellent Tsar Bomba EP on Troubleman, Zola Jesus was nice enough to drop by for a brunch-hour set on a winter Sunday morning. The Madison, WI-based band is led by the warped caberet chanteuse vocalizing of Nika (sometimes aka Zola Jesus, actually) who constructs and plays the tunes herself on the recordings. The live band version consists of Max Elliott (floor tom), Lindsay (ex-Pink Reason, bass) and Dead Luke (synth). Zola Jesus stirs up a charming mix of synth-mired
darkwave and lo-fi bedroom haze with charisma to spare. The Jersey Boy bagels were a big hit with the band.
