My Jerusalem – Preachers


Behold the concept behind Preachers, the second full-length release from Austin’s My Jerusalem (Jeff Klein – Vocals, Guitar; Jon Merz – Guitar, Keyboards, Horns; Michael St Clair – Violin, Keyboards, Horns; Grant Van Amburgh – Drums; Geena Spigarelli – Bass) . From the opening piano of the haunting title track, to the unexpected pummeling guitar and drums on closer “I Left My Conscience In You”, Preachers leads the listener on a cinematic journey through a reckless, jagged landscape of Raymond Carver-esque stories, fueled by Klein’s persuasive baritone, ominous guitars, dream-like keyboards and a deep rhythmic pulse. Recorded in under three weeks by Spoon drummer Jim Eno (Heartless Bastards, Polica, Black Joe Lewis) at his Public Hi-Fi studio, Preachers is the first My Jerusalem album genuinely made by a band, not just performed by a group of musicians. Equal parts sweet, morbid, strange, and sincere, Preachers is an experience that could convert the most steadfast of non-believers!
