Now Streaming: Zola Jesus’ “Avalanche”

Zola Jesus

She may have left Wisconsin for sunnier California skies, but if the name of her latest track is any indication, Zola Jesus hasn’t forgotten about the (sometimes) frigid land she once called home.

The contemplative “Avalanches” drips with strings and vocals that remind us of something falling between Joni Mitchell and Sharon Van Etten.  Have a listen here, courtesy of NPR.
