Jeff The Brotherhood – ‘Hypnotic Nights’

This album screams ‘organised fun’ more than ‘spontaneous party’

Jamin Orrall, half of Nashville duo Jeff The Brotherhood, is the ex-drummer for briefly thrilling mid-noughties punks Be Your Own Pet. The less famous but equally rockin’ JTB boast seven albums to BYOP’s two, but still sound as young and reckless as the day they started, thanks to the schoolyard spirit in Jamin and his brother Jake’s music. ‘Hypnotic Nights’ is produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, and songs such as ‘Sixpack’ fit nicely into the Weezer-shaped hole in the world. The magnificence of their live show is lost a little on an album that screams ‘organised fun’ more than ‘spontaneous party’, but mostly it’s giddy garage rock.
