CD Review: Jeff the Brotherhood 

Hypnotic Nights (Warner Bros.)

Nashville siblings Jake and Jamin Orrall (sons of a Music City vet who worked on Taylor Swift's debut) lay down a Black Keys-style low-fi stomp on their new album. And the comparison is no accident: Dan Auerbach co-produced Hypnotic Nights with the brothers. Fuzzy, scuzzy, and a throwback to Nuggets garage rock, songs like "Country Life" and "Sixpack" are sloppy, solid slabs of primal rock & roll, no subgenres necessary.
