Nashville indie rock duo offers another sneak peek of new album “Magick Songs.”
Nashville indie-rockers JEFF the Brotherhood have now offered two first glances at their newest LP “Magick Songs,” which is still yet to be released in its entirety. Consisting of two brothers who first appeared together in the beginning stages of adolescence at house shows and performing initially as “The Sex,” Jake and Jamin Orrall have carved out a niche as a prolific garage rock outfit, complete with an album with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, a song on Grand Theft Auto V, millions of views and streams, and a rabid fanbase.
Their sound was never predictable, but their past two LPs have been similar in energy and tone for the majority of the projects, always featuring a little twist just to fuck with things, but the two Magick Songs tracks have been drastically different from the in-your-face, punchy guitar with powerful lead vocals JEFF has given us in the past. “Camel Swallowed Whole” was a complete change of pace, unlike any JEFF songs I have heard to date. Softer drums, guitar, and vocals made for a completely different vibe on this joint, and honestly, it’s a welcome change.
Jake and Jamin are growing up. They’re no longer the kids who founded legendary Infinity Cat Recordings out of their garage in middle school. They’re maturing and so is their music. Camel Swallowed Whole is mellow and honest. It’s contemporary and easy to listen to, and I am quite eager to listen to their new album several times.
