Zola Jesus is prepping the most awesome remix album of the year – Versions, a record of rearrangements and reperformances of her songs. JG Thirwell, better known as the industrial figurehead Foetus, helped Nika Rosa Danilova rearrange the tracks, which she then performed with the Mivos Quartet. The first new version we’re hearing is “Avalanche (Slow),” a re-up of one of our favorite songs from her 2011 record Conatus. It’s utterly gorgeous, divorced almost entirely from its thumping, industrial beginnings and sounding like the finale in an opera thanks to the quartet’s yearning, heartstring-tugging line. Check it out – Versions is out August 20.

Jessie Ware certainly knows her strengths, but does everyone with a hand or two in Tough Love’s creation know them, too?
