Zola Jesus, David Lynch, Sacred Bones all doin' stuff together: brains across America explode

Somewhere, in a strange parallel universe, Zola Jesus is an unemployed girl looking for work all day on the internet in between bouts of watching ABC’s Revenge (It’s good! No, seriously!) and I am the petite indie goth diva signed to Sacred Bones and collaborating with David Lynch on a new remix. In that magical world, monkeys ride bicycles to work every day! And if you know the secret chant, unicorns will appear to do your housework! Yes, that certainly is a wonderful universe, or Liziverse, as its denizens call it. Welcome to the Liziverse.

But for those of us trapped here in the boring ol’ REAL universe, the news is the other way around — and either way, it’s pretty damn awesome. See, Zola Jesus, wouldn’t you know it, is a big fan of filmmaker-turned-electronic-musician David Lynch. And it seems Lynch is also a big fan of hers. The man behind Twin Peaks and Crazy Clown Time (TMT Review) was given a copy of Zola’s latest, Conatus (TMT Review), and picked the track “In Your Nature” to remix. And from this beautiful appreciationship grew a wonderful, bat-winged thing: a track that keeps only the soaring vocals and re-imagines the melodies. The remix is part of the “In Your Nature” single that will be available to those of us here on Lame Earth on Sacred Bones, come February 21.

Fans can behold the wonder that is Zola Jesus when she tours this winter. Dates are listed below. People can also get a load of Lynch’s Eraserhead soundtrack, deluxe vinyl style, when Sacred Bones reissues it later this year. Okay, maybe the normal world is actually starting to sound pretty rad.
