Nashville-born brothers Jake and Jamin Orall have been dabbling in psych and garage-rock soundscapes since they first started playing as JEFF the Brotherhood in high school back in 2001. Shortly after the release of their ninth album, Wasted on the Dream, earlier this year, they have already completed their next project, Global Chakra Rhythms, a liberating double LP showcasing instrumental experimentation and an unabashed deviation from their earlier, more traditional pop tendencies.
Working with several other Nashville greats such as Jack Lawrence of the Dead Weather and Bully’s Reece Lazarus, JEFF the Brotherhood still upholds the coarse noise and dizzying, kaleidoscopic tones of their earlier work and expands their sonic vocabulary through their incorporation of discordant textures layered by repetitious organ, saxophone and quivering guitar. Providing a sense of familiarity through sinuous harmonies countered by scratches and clicks of aberrance, Global Chakra Rhythms is an auditory expedition that covers a spectrum of primordial, yet foreign sounds.
The double album comes out November 13th via Infinity Cat Recordings.
