Hear New Sound: Zola Jesus' "In Your Nature" (David Lynch Remix)


Dark chanteuse Zola Jesus is stepping off the heels of a successful 2011 with her excellent listmaking sophomore LP, Conatus. In 2012, she's going to continue building off the momentum with a brand new 7" single culled from the effort, "In Your Nature" on February 21st through Sacred Bones. Offering a flattering and fitting endorsement to Nika Danilova's beautiful gloom pop is avant garde filmmaker David Lynch who -- with an assist from his engineer Dean Hurley -- has now become the first and only person granted permission to remix one of Danilova's tracks. The acclaimed director behind cult classics such as Eraserhead and Twin Peaks is no stranger to music himself. Just last year, he entered the electro-pop fray with his wonderfully weird solo effort Crazy Clown Time. Here, Lynch downplays the danceable coldwave aesthetics that glisten in the original by reimagining its soundscape with slowed, serene and droning atmospherics. Take a listen to the remix and the original to get a greater sense of how complimentary these two artists are...
