I love Zola Jesus, but how many people do you know make their first European tour stops at near-stadium-sized venues? And I love Caleb/Sacred Bones, but something tells me this is a precursor to a label jump. Keep in mind she has been working on a full length for a pretty long time, and she's been doing things like interviewing Harmony Korine. Not to mention the combination of her looks, age and timing of her music with the renaissance of nu-goth, and it would seem as though something is afoot. Maybe I'm completely off-base here, and good ol' Karin Dreijer Andersson is a huge fan of Nika Roza Danilova, but if it happens, I'm going to say I told you so.
Until then, if you're in Scotland, England or France in September, go check her out.
