We're sorry, but this product is no longer available.

2010, Sacred Bones Records

The CD version includes bonus videos for "Night" and "Clay Bodies"! Saying the last six months have been a whirlwind for Sacred Bones' youngest roster artist would certainly be a bit of an understatement. In addition to turning twenty-one successfully, by the time you read this, she will have also graduated college with a double major, and left her home of Wisconsin for the significantly less flat pavement of Los Angeles. But beyond the collegiate and personal milestones, Zola Jesus has attained some crucial career milestones since her last EP as well. She has worked with a producer (Chris Coady) for the first time, the fruits of which labor appear here on the first track, "Poor Animal," featuring Cult of Youth member Christiana Key on violin. Gone are the morose, gothic low-fi vibes, and in their place is an airy, almost dance track that still sounds as true to form as any other endeavor Danilova has undertaken. An old hit and recent show-stopper live track, "Sea Talk," has been re-recorded as well, and this new, well mic'd version is breathtakingly good. Closer "Lightsick" is a straight piano ballad - not synth, real piano. And for her darker fans, "Tower" still has that Mad Max apocalyptic creep we know and love. Additionally, the artwork for this record presents a softer, blonder ZJ as photographed by her mother in the woods near their home. Less chocolate tasting and lovely in a whole new way.
