Eskimeaux is the recording project of songwriter and producer Gabrielle Smith, also a founding member of The Epoch, a Brooklyn-based songwriting and art collective. Smith started using the moniker in 2007, releasing experimental and noise albums, and developing the sound over the years into the realm of more structured songwriting. 2011's Two Mountains, 2012's EDM, and her new album, O.K., capture her beat-driven and poetic bedroom pop.
Two Mountains was recorded in 2010 as a dialogue between Smith and Benjamin Schurr. As former collaborators now living in different states, Smith and Schurr decided to try working together from afar. After finishing up each recording in different bedrooms between the Hudson Valley and Philadelphia, Smith sent them to Schurr in North Carolina to add the finishing touches. Once 11 songs were finished, Two Mountains emerged, originally released only digitally and in a very limited run of handmade CD's. In late 2015, Two Mountains was issued for the first time on vinyl, cassette, and CD via Yellow K Records.
