JEFF the Brotherhood is an American two-piece rock band consisting of brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall, hailing from Nashville, Tennessee. Their style has been described by music writers as containing elements of psychedelic rock, garage rock, punk and pop. They have released five original LPs on the label Infinity Cat, one live album on Third Man Records, and assorted singles and splits with noted artists such as Ty Segall, Best Coast, and Screaming Females. They tour extensively and have played shows across the United States and internationally.
Dig the Classics opens with Jeff the Brotherhood covering a Pixies’ track, “Gouge Away”, from the 1989 masterpiece, Doolittle. There are the loud, quiet, loud aesthetics that Pixies fans value and the signature JtB guitar crunch sounds great on this song.
Track 2 is a cover of “Mystery” from The Wipers’ 1980 debut LP, Is This Real? Punk and pep. This bouncy track reminded me to revisit The Wipers again. I have been negligent in paying them their due. It is a short track, but it packs a nice punch.
Next, Jeff the Brotherhood commence to wreaking havoc on My Blood Valentine’s “Come in Alone” from their timeless LP Loveless. It is not as layered as MBV, but there is a ton of charm in this stripped down version. It is a bit of dirty sound that I thoroughly enjoyed and it still has that psychedelic guitar hook.
