JEFF the Brotherhood

JEFF the Brotherhood, who are just wrapped up a tour with Best Coast, have been on a steady climb for the last three years or so, touring their asses off, playing killer show after killer show and cranking out awesome records to boot. And even while the venues get bigger, JEFF always make a point to play smaller shows as well -- they have pretty much fit in a Death by Audio show every time they come through NYC. To boot, Jake and Jamin are also two of the nicest guys you're likely to meet.

I have a feeling JEFF are about to bust wide with their new album Hypnotic Nights, their first for Warner Brothers and maybe their best yet. Co-produced by JEFF and Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, the album is one catchy, crunchy jam after the next. And while I'm pretty sure Jake's guitar still only has three strings, the album sprinkles in keyboards and other instrumentation (did I hear saxaphone in there?) to fill out their sound just a bit. But it's the songs that make this record, crammed with stick-in-your-head hooks and riffs, "ooh oohs," "whoa-ohs" and big sing-a-long choruses that make this such a fun, inventive album. Oh, and it rocks. It's out Tuesday, July 17 and if you pre-order the album through their website you get a free can koozie, button and bumper sticker. It's streaming in full at NPR.

BrooklynVegan is happy to announce we're presenting a record release show at Santos Party House on Wednesday, July 18 with openers Fuck Ton. It's in the smaller Santos basement, not the main room, and is FREE. First-come, first served. Doors are at 8PM and the show's at 8:30PM. Flyer for the 16+ show is below.

We're also giving away five autographed vinyl copies of Hypnotic Nights with multi-use gatefold sleeve and a CD of the album too. Details on how to enter are below.

Auerbach has ruined this band's sound. the new record sounds like Weezer leftovers.

These guys simply rule! Half a guitar, half a drum kit and full awesomeness! New album rips!

11:51 is right. That's exactly what their new shit sounds like. sucks.

I'm just listening to the album now, and yeah, you guys are pretty right. But I do think these songs will come off much better live.

Posted by Anonymous | July 13, 2012 12:50 PM

Last album was through Warner too... and it sold a little over 8,000 copies in the US.

I didnt want to make a typical snap judgement about the band based on appearances alone, so I spent the last hour or so youtubing them to get a more objective idea.

Oh my god this band sucks. Seriously. "my name is Jeff?" The sixpack song? This is something I'd listen to when I was 15 and retarded because I saw them open for Blink 182. (who, sadly, probably write better lyrics) Does anyone spend more than five minutes writing a song nowadays?

It is a good album but no where near as good as Heavy Days

My god some one had to ruin the show by throwing oranges in peoples eyes. People were rushed to Bellevue with burning eyes & irritations in their paper cuts from Jeff the Brotherhood flyers.

^Nope sorry...but feel free to try again 7:08.

someone in the band must have lied to 1:05 about the sales of their last record.

One thing I've noticed is 75% of all posters on this site are negative.

Posted by Anonymous | July 15, 2012 6:42 PM

They are a fun, simple, cool rock band. So of course you lot of fat mouth breathers hate them.

6:42 - You're a little late but welcome to the party pal. We've kept a seat warm for ya.

The whole appeal to this band was the fast uptempo black Sabbath meets the Ramones vibe they had going on. Now everything is slloooowed down. The same crunchy sounding chords over and over. the only song it works on is Leave me Out, but then again I only made it two-thirds of the way through the record.

Numbers straight from Nielsen:
We Are the Champions: 8,097
Heave Days: 3,943

With the hype and the tour... this record will probably get 15,000.

Who gives a shit; I saw them at Maxwells and it was the most fun I've had at a show in years.

You're all a bunch of tools.

They haven't been around long enough to have a "sound" genius

Man, The Black Keys have been sucking since Brothers.

Attack & Release was their last good album.
