Jerusalem and The Starbaskets

“Walkin’ Across Yr Grave”

Missouri’s Jerusalem and The Starbaskets, featuring Jeremy Freeze and Kim Sherman, will release DOST on May 7 via De Stijl. The group is terribly under-recorded (so I’m told), so De Stijl has taken upon itself the duty to spread their tunes.

“A Bomb In That Suitcase”

Asva’s Presences Of Absences drops May 26 on Important. It’s a limited-to-500 double LP, and after friends and family get their copies, there’ll be, what, like 20 left? As Todd Rundgren once sang, “I gave you fair warning.”
