Guardian New Music // Michael Cragg
“Jherek Bischoff was described by the New York Times as a “pop polymath”, which sort of makes sense, given the fact he has fingers in many pies – he’s performed with the likes Parenthetical Girls, Xiu Xiu and Amanda Palmer and describes himself as a composer, producer,
performer and arranger – but the “pop” bit is perhaps slightly misleading. We’re not talking LMFAO here. Instead, Bischoff creates opulent and undulating song suites that sweep and swoop in all the right places, displayed expertly on Young and Lovely – premiered here exclusively – featuring Zac Pennington and French star Soko. Released as part of a double A-side single with the David Byrne-featuring Eyes, for Record Store Day, Young and Lovely opens at a canter, strings and horns embellishing a lovely, summery melody before the whole thing turns into a more funereal stagger for a good minute and a half before the strings return and the whole thing takes flight again. It’s really very lovely. Eyes/Young and Lovely is released on limited edition numbered 7″ single on Record Store Day, Saturday 21 April, on The Leaf Label.”
