My Jerusalem is an Indie Rock band that formed in the New Orleans, Louisiana area and now resides in Austin, Texas. The band originally began as a collective featuring Jeff Klein and Dave Rosser of The Twilight Singers, Rick Nelson of Polyphonic Spree, Ashley Dzerigian of Great Northern and Cully Symington of Bishop Allen. Their debut EP was released on March 10th and is titled "Without Feathers".
The Preservation is a blend of vocal harmonies, driving guitars, bouncy pianos and an amalgam of American music that has come to define Austin bands in the past decade. With a repertoire that is clearly influenced by early 60's girl groups and chamber pop as well as the psych and garage rock from that era, the band also focuses on composition and songwriting that creates a modern sound. The band has released two LPs since their formation in 2009. The self-titled "The Preservation" recorded in a home studio in 2010 and "Two Sisters" recorded in 2011 at Public Hi-Fi in Austin, a studio built by Spoon drummer/producer Jim Eno.
