Zola Jesus, moniker for Russian-American musician Nika Danilova, has the 11-track follow-up to last year's Stridulum II on delivery for this fall, track lists and all. The LP is called Conatus, and one of the tracks, titled "Vessel", is available for download.

It's comes as no surprise that the term "goth" is sometimes thrown into the plethora of terms used to describe Zola's sound. The darkness in her voice is easily identifiable in "Vessel". In general, her musical goals seem to be primarily emotive. This doesn't stop the sadness that clings to each chord from wafting its way into a slightly more poppy chorus. And in spite of the fact that emotion is a driving force behind her sound, it doesn't steer her music off a cliff. She has a good range of synth to complement her moaning vocals that keep her sound from ever becoming mundane. Thus she dodges the dirty words like "angsty" and "emo" in this new track, and quite possibly, in her forthcoming album.

Conatus:
01. Swords
02. Avalanche
03. Vessel
04. Hikikomori
05. Ixode
06. Seekir
07. In Your Nature
08. Lick the Palm of the Burning Handshake
09. Shivers
10. Skin
11. Collapse
