Zola Jesus and JG Thirlwell

Versions, the new collaboration between Zola Jesus and JG Thirlwell, is coming out this summer, and it's a monster...sort of at the intersection of experimental singers like Julia Holter and dance-leaning, extended vocalist like Austra...oh and there's a full set of string arrangements, courtesy of Mr. Thirwell and the Mivos Quartet. The whole thing started at the Guggenheim a couple of years ago, and what do you know, there's video.

I saw Zola Jesus at Beerland at SXSW a few years ago, when no one knew who she was yet (I had to ask three people) but she was pretty intense even then.
