It took almost a decade for brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall to burst the garage-band bubble and find exposure on a national level. Since the release of the band’s fifth studio LP We Are the Champions in 2011, the duo have been on a steady rise, receiving high praises from magazines (SPIN, PASTE), blogs (Pitchfork, Stereogum), and artists across the map. After playing SXSW last year, the band was approached by and have since collaborated with some of the most influential musicians of this decade (including Ty Segall, Jack White, and Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys). Auerbach is currently producing the band’s sixth LP, Hypnotic Nights, due out later this year.
Jeff the Brotherhood’s grungy infectious sound is full of distortion, subtle melodies, and modest lyrics that are stripped down to single emotions, leaving little to the imagination – but also leaving a lasting impression, creating a desire to hit repeat on most tracks. To get a better feel for their music give a listen to the tracks “Bummer,” “Mellow Out,” and “Stay Up Late” off of We Are the Champions. If you like what you hear, be sure to the check them out this Friday night at Red Palace. Also, keep up with them on Facebook, Twitter, and their official website for any updates on the release of their new album.
