JEFF The Brotherhood Australian Tour 2013 – Big Day Out Sideshows

Written by Marc Zanotti on September 18, 2012

Thought Music Feeds was done for the day with Big Day Out sideshow announcements aye? Well think again! The lastest set of sideshows comes from Nashville’s rocking duo JEFF the Brotherhood. Made up of Orrall brothers Jake and Jamin, the American two-piece recently released their seventh studio record Hypnotic Nights, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.

JEFF the Brotherhood’s particular brand of fuzzed-out rock has a slightly peculiar character thanks to Jake’s use of a three-stringed guitar. “When we started the band, I didn’t know how to play guitar,” Jake explains, “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.”

Joining JEFF the Brotherhood on the road for all but two dates is Melbourne seven-piece King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, who have been making quite a bit of noise with their thrashing single Elbow taken from the band’s debut LP 12 Bar Bruise. With their powers combined, JEFF the Brotherhood and KG&TLW will be a noisy good time for sure.
