Zola Jesus – “Lightsick”

Zola Jesus is one of those buzziest of buzz artists into whose catalog I haven’t really been able to find a proper entry point.  Her big songs have drifted past me in my internet wanderings, but never really grabbed my attention enough for me to seek out the EP or full length they came from.

And now there’s “Lightsick”: a spare, brooding ballad in which Nika Danilova’s much-lauded pipes are prominently featured atop echoing piano.  And definitely her most melodically accessible song I’ve heard.
