My Jerusalem in Studio 2A Tuesday at 4:30pm on The Home Stretch
My Jerusalem are playing Tuesday night at Plush with HAIRSPRAYFIREANDGIRLS.
My Jerusalem is led by songwriter Jeff Klein who, after years of going it alone with critically acclaimed solo albums, working with fellow tarnished souls like Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan and dispensing sobering observations in his smoke-curled voice, has assembled a choir of similarly ragged angels for My Jerusalem’s debut, Gone For Good. Bassist and vocalist Ashley Dzerigian (formerly of Great Northern) provides the tender counterpoint with the burnished brass of trumpet player Matt Bricker (The Polyphonic Spree) and trombonist Jon Merz, and keyboardist Evan Jacobs layers in the atmospheres and tugs at the heartstrings while drummer Kevin Bybee keeps the rolling, rhythmic pulse. Indeed, it’s probably way too many people to make a sound this lonesome.
