a rough trade shops exclusive with a bonus mixtape cd by zola jesus featuring meredith monk, jackie wilson, throbbing gristle, droids, delia derbyshire etc. zola jesus is the endeavor of a solitary girl named nika roza danilova to simultaneously combat and invoke the approaching apocalypse using the only weapon / offering she has; her voice. after a decade of opera study and a musical awakening involving such varied inspiration as billboard bubblegum, classical aria's, no-wave, and avant industrial, she was able to thread her influences into a sound uniquely her own. nika refines her soulful psalms creating pop songs that are as equally nurturing as they are foreboding. the guardian, nme and the bbc are already signing her praises. 'stridulum 2' is a full length and contains three previously unreleased tracks that thematically expound on the ep.
