Brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall, better known as the band JEFF the Brotherhood, are releasing their 8th studio album titled Wasted on the Dream.
Combining elements of classic hard rock like Black Sabbath and Jethro Tull with '90s alternative rock of Soundgarden and Weezer, Wasted on the Dream is 40 minutes of fuzzy guitar riffs, pounding drums, and bubblegum choruses.
"Voyage Into Dreams," and "Mystified Minds" are some of the heavier songs you'll find on the album, while "Cosmic Visions" and "In My Dreams" (featuring Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast) are mid-tempo numbers that simmer on the thick, distorted guitars.
"Black Cherry Pie" features flute playing from none other than Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson, and the steady, sludge heaviness of "Melting Place" recalls the early sounds of Black Sabbath.
"In My Mouth" and "Karaoke, TN" flourish with pop sensibilities in the choruses while maintaining a grunge vibe. "What's A Creep" is packed with relentless energy, and "Prairie Song" closes out the album on the mellower side with heady psychedelic riffs and sound effects.
Not every track is a keeper, but overall this is a solid album from the Nashville bad boys.
