Two thick cuts from Jeffrey Jerusalem, featuring a picture of Mount St. Helens (post eruption).
Side A: This Week
Side B: Smiling & Tender
Hype from the Willamette Week:
“Jeffrey Jerusalem is busy. In between playing drums for YACHT–both on tour and in the studio–and making music videos at his mother’s house, the Portland disco-pop producer has also been working on a new album. Last month he unveiled the burbling, Caribou-ish “Smiling and Tender,” which turns out to be the B-side for “This Week,” the first official single off the as-yet-unnamed followup to 2009’s Grimace.
Unlike “Smiling,” which is crouched in a bit of murk and mystery, “This Week” is pure euphoria, with Jerusalem and guest vocalist Rebecca Kaufman of under-hyped New York band Ava Luna singing above a percolating rhythm and a cloud of blissful synthesizers.”
