zola jesus – vessel

[music monday]

from theweirdfishes.com

Zola Jesus is probably the best thing that has ever come out of Madison, Wisconsin.

Wow, that’s totally rude. Let’s start over.
Zola Jesus is Nika Roza Danilova, a Russian-American 22-year-old from the forests of Wisconsin. She recorded her first full-length album in her dorm room one winter while attending University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2009 … but you can read all about that on Wikipedia.

I first heard this song and this artist on an NPR playlist last year. My first impression was “Woah.” Hope you enjoy.
