So…this is performance. I don’t want to build it up too much but I honestly don’t think I could – even if I started throwing hyperbole all over the place. I am just smitten.
Good Got!!! When the two of them do their little banshee back of the throat voice thing – it’s like they are reaching down my throat and tickling my tummy.
LP will be playing the SXSW festival so if you’re lucky enough to be there – I’d suggest not missing out on her shows.

Zola Jesus is not a mainstay in my music collection but her upcoming album, Conatus, has the makings of a great soundtrack to a rainy day when I’m not in the mood to deal with other people in my general vicinity.
