JEFF the Brotherhood
JEFF the Brotherhood
The best rock 'n' roll, the kind that gets under your skin and makes all your senses heighten, is simple and comprised of hard work and unrelenting passion—all of which JEFF The Brotherhood embody and exemplify on their Warner Bros. Records debut LP, Hypnotic Nights. Brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall have been playing together since they were little kids and formed the group when they were in high school. The boys grew up with a voracious appetite for any music they could get their hands on.



The band incorporates a DIY ethos in everything they do, including their raucous live shows. JEFF have been touring tirelessly for the past 10 years, playing any and all conceivable venues—from basements and backyard sheds to Bonnaroo and The Bowery Ballroom. The duo clocked in over 400 shows in the past two years alone and have shared bills with Best Coast, Fucked Up, Pentagram, The Kills, The Greenhornes and more.



When it comes to creating their desired sound, JEFF believes that less is more. This idea is reflected in Jake's decision to play a guitar with only three strings. Jake explains, "When we started the band, I didn't know how to play guitar," he remembers, "I thought, in order to teach myself, it would be easier to play if I simplified it. I started with two strings, but you can't really play any chords that way, so I added a third string [which added] this interesting limitation that forced me to create my own style and approach to the instrument."


These musical intricacies all come together on Hypnotic Nights, which was co-produced by Jake, Jamin and musician/producer Dan Auerbach (Dr. John, The Ettes). The album was recorded in Nashville at Dan's Easy Eye Sound Studio in early 2012. JEFF entered the studio focused and prepared with a clear vision for the album they wanted to make, completing Hypnotic Nights in only one week. For any other band, completing an album in seven days would seem like a challenging feat, but for JEFF those seven days felt like a luxury when compared to the amount of time spent on making 2009's Heavy Days and 2011's We are The Champions, which were released on the band's own label Infinity Cat Recordings. Each took only three days to make.



"We've never worked with a producer before, so this was the first time we'd ever had any outside input," says Jamin. "It was Dan's first co-production, too, and it really worked. He just hung out, let us do our thing and helped when we needed it." Adds Jake, "We write songs without anyone else in mind, so Dan brought in this idea of, 'Well, you guys do what you do and I'll present it so everyone else will understand.'"



The result is Hypnotic Nights, an album that uniquely blends elements of indie, punk, garage, and psychedelic rock. The first single, "Sixpack," is a fuzzed-out rocker driven by reverb-heavy riffs and propulsive drumbeats. Songs like "Leave Me Out" and "Dark Energy" venture into new musical territory for JEFF, but the band isn't afraid of experimentation. After all, it's this imagination and ingenuity that makes Dan Auerbach plainly say, "JEFF The Brotherhood are the next big name in showbiz."


In the end, Jake and Jamin just want to write great songs, play great shows and inspire fans to rock along with them. For JEFF The Brotherhood, blood is thicker than water—and music runs through the band's veins.

Not In The Face
Not In The Face
With roots tracing back deep into East Texas, Not In The Face is the real-deal. The type of band that you expect to hail from the unpretentious part of the South. The soulful tint behind their "sludgy, no bull-shit" sound draws heavily from growing up in the land of Big Oil, back roads, and blistering summers. Singer and guitarist Jonathan Terrell was ushered into this world by a midwife in a crowded trailer. He grew up fast, riding horses, workin' ranches, and singing in church. He was raised on old school country and classic rock, molding his sound after the likes of Townes Van Zandt and Tom Petty. Drummer Wes Cargal was brought up in a truckin' man's home and spent his youth racing motorcycles across the country. He fed his love for music on the old school country, psych-rock fuzz and blues of bands and singers such as George Jones, ZZ Top, and Led Zeppelin, who inspired him to take up beating the skins himself.
In 2007, Jonathan headed to Austin, looking to take his music career to the next level. He began to make a name for himself as a solo artist, touring across the country and eventually opening for country legends such as Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. Not long after, Wes followed suit with his own move to Austin, honing his drum skills by relentless touring with several bands and sitting in with such legendary acts as Alan Haynes and Dale Watson. The two re-connected in the prolific local Austin music scene, eventually forming the two-piece Not In The Face in 2009. What started as "something fun to do at a local bar for friends and free drinks" eventually took precedence over all their other projects.
Not In The Face started by melting faces the old-fashioned way, gaining attention with their unofficial SXSW 2 a.m. parking lot show that some critics claimed was "the best show of SXSW 2010." Then in January 2011, Not In The Face played during Austin's Free Week, turning in what The Austin Chronicle called one of the "all time best shows EVER" at the legendary Austin venue Emo's, sharing the honor with such acts as Johnny Cash, Wu-Tang Clan, and Arcade Fire. Later in 2011, Electric Factory Records released their first album, Bikini. With echoes of The Sonics, Muddy Waters, Elvis, and Roy Orbison, songs from the album began receiving regular play on several radio stations across the country. Laurie Gallardo, radio-host at Austin's KUT 90.5, named the album as her favorite release of 2011, stating, "It never ceases to amaze me when all it takes is two great musicians to make such a big sound. High-octane, high-energy rock and pop from this dynamic duo. Excellent. Well done, lads."
In June 2011, Not In The Face took their live show on the road, touring from L.A. to New York and everywhere in between. Their electrifying high-energy live performances have gained them fans all over the country. Not In The Face is constantly writing new music and injecting their own unique sound into covers of old bangers by the likes of Screamin' Jay Hawkins and T. Rex, all the while putting more and more touring miles on the ol' van. Not In The Face is setting out to light a fire and breathe the fun back into that good old-fashioned hot, dirty, and mean rock and roll revival. See ya in church.
