If you’ve been keeping up, then you already know that Nashville’s own JEFF the Brotherhood are set to release a new EP of covers, Dig the Classics, in just a few short days, Sept. 30, via Warner Bros. And, as bands are wont to do, the duo have been unveiling tracks through different outlets ahead, in order to build anticipation. We’ve already heard their take on Pixies’ “Gouge Away,” My Bloody Valentine’s “Come in Alone,” and the Wipers’ “Mystery.” Now, thanks to Purevolume and AbsolutePunk, respectively, we get an early taste of JEFF’s renditions of Teenage Fanclub’s “Mad Dog 2020” and Colleen Green’s “Cujo.” By our count, that leaves only Beck’s “Totally Confused” left unreleased. You can pre-order a copy of Dig the Classics now on vinyl or on iTunes, and you can stream JEFF’s latest tracks below! You can also catch the duo live next month at The End, where they’ll perform three nights in a row, Oct. 24, 25, and 26. Head here for more info!
In our final bit of JtB non-news news, we’ve received official word from their camp that more information on their next studio album will be available soon. While this shouldn’t come as a surprise, it does clarify that the covers EP is not, in fact, that album which was teased earlier this year, and that the band’s much-anticiapted followup to 2012’s Hypnotic Nights is still on track.
