Jerusalem & the Starbaskets
Since its beginnings, Jerusalem has performed highly approachable country-fried psych that goes over well in a variety of venues; still, rather than surrounding itself by similarly styled outﬁts, the band has consistently worked with highly experimental acts—noise beasts Warhammer 48k, acid folk duo Wooden Wand, krautrockers Cave. This embrace of experimentation has leaked into its music without detracting from its accessibility. At its core singe, the band consists of singer/guitarist Jeremy Freeze and drummer Kim Sherman who have toured together for the last 10 years, and now guitarist and former bassist for the Lost Sounds, John Garland. Their latest album, Dost rose through the college music charts and they were listed amongst Magnet Magazine's 2011 Hidden Treasures.
