Hear New Sound: JEFF The Brotherhood's "Sixpack"


Whether it be living life on the road or cooking up something new in the studio, 2011 Breakthrough Artists JEFF The Brotherhood are one of those bands who've literally grown up making music all their lives that they've probably no clue how to go a day without it. The brothers Orrall have have properly amassed a total of six LPs since learning to rock in high school (a pretty impressive fete for a duo of mid-20-something-year-olds) and last year's We Are the Champions was excellent enough to make AS' 25 Best Albums list. Keeping listeners' interests at peak will be a brand new EP Hypnotic Knights arriving digitally next Tuesday. This time around, the Nashville indie-punks invited one half of another ripping rock duo into the studio to sit behind the boards in The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach. Auerbach's characteristic tightened up production serves The Brotherhood's classic rock-meets-'90s alternative side well in the EP's first listen "Sixpack," a crunchy jam that oddly has more in common with early Weezer riffage than that of the man fine-tuning the sound.
