Zola Jesus With JG Thirwell And Mivos Quartet Versions on LP + Download

On the heels of her Conatus world tour, Nika Roza Danilova aka Zola Jesus was offered an opportunity to perform at one of the most prestigious modern art museums in the world, NY’s Guggenheim. Rather than doing her standard electronic set she decided she wanted to work with a classical composer who could arrange her songs for a quartet. 

She recruited legendary industrial pioneer JG Thirlwell to do the arrangements who since his work as Foetus, has been scoring and composing symphonic arrangements for a variety of projects including currently scoring Adult Swim’s Venture Brothers series. Thirlwell’s oeuvre runs the gamut from orchestrations, big band, and cathartic noise-rock to abstract electronics, sound sculpture, and chamber music, thus making him the perfect collaborator to help realize Danilova’s vision. 

Danilova explains her intentions with the album: “Versions is about the bone of the music; taking approximations from past records and turning them inside out. With all framework exposed, the songs are given a new medium in which to evolve and bloom into their own tiny worlds.” Removing the bulk of electronics from these songs gives them the space to breath, thusly opening them up to be received by a much wider audience who perhaps haven’t previously ventured into the techno-pop/industrial arena.

“Nika Roza Danilova’s performance was not confined by the normal genres and subgenres we affix to music, it was truly art.” - eMusic

“Zola Jesus conquered the Guggenheim.”  - Village Voice
