“Vessel” is as dark and brooding as any Zola Jesus song, but her voice shines through like a diva’s. She sounds so soulful and in command. The surrounding goth furnishings are also nice, though—especially the pounding beat and odd electronic noises that sound like she’s orchestrating some elaborate sci-fi machine. Zola Jesus’ new album Conatus is out October 4th on Sacred Bones. You can download the single on iTunes now.
