Ark of The Lord

Town of Evergreen, WI

On rural Highway 64 nearest the town of Evergreen, Wisconsin sits the Ark of the Lord. The weathered building shares a parcel of land with a trailer and no apparent driveway, which would render it completely unassuming without the proud handmade sign in front that proclaims the spot as 'THE ARK OF THE LORD'. The steps to the pale yellow doorway have collapsed. The white wooden siding is cracked with black. The congregation is buried in the unmarked cemetrry out back. In the rainy haze, the surrounding fields extend forever in each direction. It is exactly where I picture Zola Jesus performing a gothic wedding set.

I didn't read the title of the song, and I didn't recognize it until 3:00+ mins. in. I feel like that is a good thing.

God bless you Kyle!

Definitely the sign of a good cover.
