about

J Hacha De Zola New York, New York

With musical influences as culturally diverse as the city he grew up in, Jersey City NJ artist J Hacha De Zola blends several fundamental styles of music in a manner that may be initially difficult to characterize succinctly. His self-stylized “urban junkyard” sound feels like a composite of various musical forms across a wide spectrum of bluesy-folk, jazz, latin, funk to psychedelia. ... more

Track Name: A Curious thing
Rapt in rage and boredom
i threw my bottle at him
oh no
such a curious thing

see the tattooed dancer
yeah you want to love her
a new friend
such a curious thing

An outlandish leap
a fearful joy
the fatal music
of her voice
left me
left me no choice
such a curious thing

Praise the idiotic
happiness died a quick death
your love
such a curious thing

Wild fantasies of fiction
(they) gotta kill the congregation
Faith
such a curious thing

An outlandish leap
a fearful joy
the fatal music
of her voice
left me
left me no choice
such a curious thing
Track Name: Bubble Gum
Walking on the living road
lights are on
but no ones home
Bubble gum
game show

its easy when you're not awake
floating in a dream of stone
keep singing that same sad song

he let another chance go on by
lost in those familiar eyes
Shes as somber as the cool dark night

Peculiar way to be
running your monopoly
keep talking about that moral sense
Track Name: In Curtains
lower than the angels
harvest of the season

nine times the space
in curtains
between night and day

Oh lord of poison
crown me in poppy

nine times the space
in curtains
between night and day

Oh queen of delights
draped in the dawn

nine times the space
in curtains
between night and day
Track Name: Falling out of Chairs
Every little sin
the blood is bad
and taken a turn
Oh i've never felt
like anyone

Falling out of chairs
Falling out of chairs
Over you

Falling out of chairs
Falling out of chairs
Over you

Every little sin
the blood is bad
and taken a turn
Night is long
time is swift
in a gilded cage

Falling out of chairs
Falling out of chairs
Over you

Falling out of chairs
Falling out of chairs
Over you
Track Name: Picaro Obscuro
Tiny white flowers
Oh the exotic trees
Stirring of the evening breezes

Oh my frightened rabbit
you can not follow me
feel the ground to quiver?

I thought i won you over
Like a hot and silent sea
running away
running away
from me

On the verge of seeming
rather undignified
ugly in its movements

Tiny white flowers
Oh the exotic trees
Stirring of the evening breezes

I thought i won you over
Like a hot and silent sea
running away
running away
from me
Track Name: Black Water
Strange fool
tears in his eyes
saints falling outta heaven
choking on their medicine

red skies
burning bright
singing in the meadow
dancing with the shadow

Midnight crystallized
the wind changed direction
a dark invocation
Swallow a heavy dose of poison

Thrown by
Ordinary light
models of behavior
killing all your saviors

black boot
heel to the ground
brains beat black and blue
knock the devil out of you

Black water
Filled to the brim
drinking down that buckshot
cruising through the parking lot
and swallow a heavy dose of poison
Track Name: Taking Names
Hand over hand
no turning back
whispering ones
Voices conspire
high words
were seldom spoken
....................
.....................
strange name for an angel

...............................
Track Name: On Your Own
Killer Hubris
the world is wicked
everybody wants to be first
me - me - me- oh me

Go on
break my heart
crazy - stupid is a dangerous combination
oh you're done

You, You're on your own
You, You're on your own

A burlesque
of what he used to be
satiate all your favorite beasts
keep on stumbling down that same old road
i dont know
keep falling on down
yeah you hurt me bad
brains dulled by the same old thing
Room painted blue
same old blue
and nothing new

You, You're on your own
You, You're on your own
Track Name: Dead End Street
Pain without reason
I'm sick with the dream
Always suffering
Bad chemistry
i wont take the medicine

ever since you left me
i've been walking down that street
Dead end street

Oh will you?
bury me deep?
Dust in my pockets
chains on my feet
ill sing a foregn refrain
diamond fires
in her eyes

ill be out walking
down a dead end street
out there
walking

And ill go out there
walking
im out there
down down
a dead end street

Oh i wish you would love me
wish you would love me
wish you would love me
love
please wont you love me
wish you would love me
baby
please
Track Name: Tears of Summer
Beyond the river
those tears of summer
an insolent azure
faith caught a fever

beyond the river
oh save your tears for summer
I'm beyond the river
save your tears for summer

shaking their sections
a lofty precipice
a golden stag
revelers faithful acrobats
the stranger clapped his hands
and he said yea

Beyond the river
save your tears for summer
im beyond the river
oh save your tears for summer

follow the orgy
lanced with light
from the cradle into
a dreaming sea
the skies one black complaint
ripple with water
a heavy saddness
no wine
no laughter
halted in the clover
complex chemical and physical reactions
how vast?
how vast?
how vast are the heavens?

I'm beyond the river
(wouldnt you like to?)
oh save your tears for summer
(wouldnt you like to?)
im beyond the river
(wouldnt you like to?)
save your tears for summer

(long gone banquet
doubled over baby
it dont hurt no more
it dont hurt no more

long gone banquet
doubled over baby
it dont hurt no more
it dont hurt no more)

i'm long gone
