JEFF's seventh album (and major-label debut) is produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach; it doesn’t stray far from that basic formula, though surprises like keyboards and even a saxophone are present. Country Life and Sixpack celebrate youth-and the essence of JEFF-with the most basic of pleasures (beer, music, friends). Their distorted, melodic guitar parts are wrapped in summery sweetness. The brothers also indulge their interest in psych-rock (the lysergic Region of Fire and the sludgy, sitar-inflected Mystic Portal II ).
The album finds that magical middle ground between sugary pop and heavy rock that Weezer once dominated in the days of the Blue Album. The brothers Orrall have tightened up their sound into something thicker and more cohesive while stepping further away from the looser, more psychedelic sound of Heavy Days, and in the process have stumbled into a sound that beautifully captures the aimless days of summertime. But really, that's to be expected from an album that opens with the line, "I want a place where I can smoke meats, where I can drink and swim in the creek.
JEFF the Brotherhood aren't anything inherently original, but there is something to admire in the way that they do things. They self-produce most everything they do, and guitarist Jake Orrall plays a guitar with only three strings on it, forcing him to find his own unique style in which to play. Beyond that, the band is an absolute workhorse when it comes to touring, playing over 400 shows in just a two year span. A lot of the songs follow a similar formula, and as a result the middle of the album does start to drag on, feeling a little too repetitive and samey, and starts to lose its punch. But JEFF the Brotherhood are at their best when they branch out from their punk-influenced anthems. Region of Fire" is mostly void of the reverb laden guitar riffs and instead has a psychedelic feel with clanging drum fills and ends with a fairly interesting guitar solo.
JEFF The Brotherhood. Tennessee lo-fi indie rock guitar and drum-playing brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall with their 7th album and first on a major label. Album Hypnotic Nights. Let's load the car up I got a bag of ice I got a six pack And I don't wanna go back. It's pretty hot out It's only 50 miles I wanna cool out And get wasted. 11. Changes (Missing Lyrics).
The real-life brothers behind JEFF the Brotherhood, Jake and Jamin Orrall, know how to find the sweet spot that connects larger-than-life rock majesty to good-natured every-guy doofiness. They're the sort of shaggy-haired dudes who doff their shirts, crack open beers and break out the taxidermy before performing songs from We Are the Champions in the NPR Music offices. But then they bash out heroically anthemic rock 'n' roll that's as polished and sweetly hooky as it is hedonistic.
Last month, brotherly Nashville bash-pop duo JEFF The Brotherhood released their Hypnotic Knights EP, a sort of taster platter for the album of the same title, which is coming soon. The band recruited the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach to produce the album, and now the whole thing is out there online. NPR has the entire LP streaming. Hypnotic Knights is out 7/17 on Warner Bros.
