 JEFF the Brotherhood released a new prog album last week, and now they are back with a new video from the release, a Nylon debut.  Limited to 1500 hand-numbered double-LPs, Global Chakra Rhythms is out now on Infinity Cat Recordings.

“The idea was to use these super 8mm found footage to give smooth aerial timeless psychedelic mood” says director Laurent Matthew Perret, adding “Analog film is really what i like, it can fly by for decades and decades. It was also really fun trying to put found footages (and 8mm footage I shot of JEFF the Brotherhood in London) together on a track without really knowing the proper meaning of the song, that’s also how i usually work, let the sound get in your blood then to your heart and then let things go by themselves, kind of emotional-only way of editing.”

After watching their eighth album sit in major-label purgatory for over a year, JEFF The Brotherhood wasted no time finishing their next project and releasing it on their own terms and their own label. This is their second record this year in 2015, following Wasted On The Dream. Recorded under mysterious circumstances, the double album Global Chakra Rhythms is a glimpse into the unpredictable minds of the brothers Orrall. It’s a psychedelic trip that recalls their more experimental pieces from The Boys R Back In Town and Rafiki’s Vision.  JEFF The Brotherhood expand their world and yours, bringing free saxophones, organs, pedal steel guitar, ghostly background vocals, and unidentifiable yet familiar textures into and out of being, summoned by the beat of Jamin’s drum and shepherded by Jake’s words and guitar. Global Chakra Rhythms is a family affair, featuring not only current JEFF touring shredders Kunal Prakash and Chet Jameson, but also fellow Nashvillians Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather), Reece Lazarus (Bully), Jessica Mcfarland (Heavy Cream, MEEMAW), Luke Schneider (Natural Child, Promised Land Sound), Christina Norwood (D. Watusi), label-and-tourmates Music Band, and more.

“‘Radiating Fiber Plane’ is the first single from the band’s forthcoming record Global Chakra Rhythms and marks a comeback to the slacker fuzz vibe of their early days after their last album’s big-budget ’90s alt-rock sound.” – Stereogum

“Hand, make horns; horns, meet sky.” – NPR

“The Nashville duo’s newest album, Wasted on the Dream, offers the same fuzzy riffs as the psychedelic kids, but adds a generous helping of pop hooks and song structure.” – Consequence of Sound

“Jake and Jamin Orral have long-since figured out a winning formula for bad-boy garage rock that’s carried this band through an entire decade of successful releases, and that’s basically forever in band-years.”- Noisey

“…it’s perfect summer listening for those who rock Vans and/or drive vans with dragons painted on the side.”- AV Club
