12 Songs, 54 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Over the course of their first 12 albums, Nashville indie-rock duo JEFF the Brotherhood established a tradition of marrying psychedelic rock, dreamy pop, and urgent garage punk into a union of lo-fi bliss. Their 13th does it all one better, melding those styles with a growing appetite for anime and sci-fi literature. Album opener “Focus on the Magick” pops and hisses like a worn out slab of vinyl, while spacey, minimalist tunes (“Celebration”) offer a deconstructed idea of what constitutes a rock song. Brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall tune low and get weird on heavier tracks such as “The Mother,” which sounds like a young Nirvana playing a stoner-rock odyssey, and “Heavy Journey,” a droning psychedelic meditation. It all closes on an appealingly drowsy note, with distortion aplenty and riffs cribbed straight from Sleep’s Holy Mountain.
