JEFF the Brotherhood Scuzzy Up the Pixies’ ‘Gouge Away’ for Covers EP

Jeff the Brotherhood 'Gouge Away' Pixies Cover 'Dig the Classics' EP

While putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to 2012’s excellent Hypnotic Nights LP, JEFF the Brotherhood devoted some time for a fun litte EP called Dig the Classics, which features covers of some of their favorite songs. The Nashville duo of brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall recorded renditions of My Bloody Valentine’s “Come in Alone,” Teenage Fanclub’s “Mad Dog 20/20,” Beck’s “Totally Confused,” and the Pixies’ “Gouge Away,” which you can hear for the first time below. In standard JEFF fashion, the Orralls strip the Doolittle classic down and scuzzify it with some grimy guitar work underneath Jake’s languid vocals. Dig the Classics is due out September 30 via Warner, and JEFF the Brotherhood are on the road through October with Music Band and Diarrhea Planet supporting.
