Zola Jesus, who is known for her brand of gothic electronica and her booming operatic-style singing, took to Twitter tonight to release her cover of Rihanna‘s hit “Diamonds”. As expected, it’s got a certain extra air of enchanting doom surrounding it. She’s got a knack for summoning that kind of mood — seriously though, the last time I saw her live, her set (and only hers) was plagued by an apocalyptic thunderstorm with an unforgiving rainfall; I left soaked and shivering, but felt the whole thing was oddly, perfectly appropriate.
