Description

Near the icy waters and snow-covered shores of Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, New York, Jeff Klein locked himself in a rental house and did nothing but write for a month. A few blocks away, in the Midwood area, sits the home in which his mother grew up. A prolonged illness had claimed her life a few years earlier. "That was me coming to terms with the whole situation," the My Jerusalem frontman explains of his attempt to embed himself within his family history after many years of being on the road, touring. "I kept walking by this house my grandparents used to live in on Avenue H. I've never been very connected to family. I've romanticized the idea of family, but I think I was just trying to connect with something." Klein, who normally resides in Austin, felt an immediate inspiration there and was prolific during these winter weeks near his mother's childhood neighborhood, producing 14 songs, 12 of which would come to be the band's forthcoming album, A Little Death. "The little death," or "la petite mort" in French, refers to, well, an orgasm, and somewhere between the literal definition and the slang is where Klein situated the album. "Like any kid, I was obsessed with death and obsessed with sex. Some people grow out of it and start families and become normal people and some of us just stay the same," he laughs. "I'm still obsessing about the psychology behind death and sex."
