Taiga (Zola Jesus album). All tracks written by Nika Roza Danilova.
From the off, Zola Jesus’ fourth full-length album, her first on Mute Records, explicitly harks back to the wintry woodlands of Danilova’s youth. The album’s title, Taiga, takes its meaning from the boreal forests spanning Russia and Canada, which extend south to her home state of Wisconsin. The opening title track, with its echoing chants, monolithic horns and a beat that switches between subterranean thrum and snapping, snarling breakbeats, presents Zola Jesus as wistful recollector. Do you wish/You could go back to it all? she wonders, as a garden of memory springs up around her ears
