If David Lynch had made Top Gun...
on 26 August 2010
then Zola Jesus would have been on the sound track. This is a dry-iced epic of massive synth slabs, with Nika Rosa Danilova's powerful, primal voice soaring out of the machine-tooled haze and sub-bass rumble. There is something gleaming and 80's about these gothic power ballads, something very direct in these tales of longing and belonging.
