This is not comfort music — but you could say it’s designed to make you feel better. Evangelista is the latest vehicle for the bracing emotional intensity of Carla Bozulich, a surviver and thriver of the L.A. punk scene who’s had no shortage of great bands over the past couple of decades (including the Geraldine Fibbers and Scarnella, with guitarist Nels Cline). “You Are a Jaguar” comes from Evangelista’s new Prince of Truth; it is for those who wish Nick Cave would’ve gotten more intense over the years, not less. It’s a life-raft for your darkest, stormiest nights at sea. It’s the kind of song you’d go to battle with — and face it, every day is a battle of some sort.
