I loooove JEFF the Brotherhood, from their adorable brotherly relationship, to their see through instruments (done well before the new Daft Punk video with clear instruments) to their fuzz filled sonic noisescapes they create. Cartoon Network Adult Swim has created a compilation of unreleased songs called Garage Swim, of which they have already put out a song by Thee Oh Sees. It will be free for everyone on May 6th at adultswim.com. Check out the JtB song right now as well as the track listing with songs by Black Lips, King Tuff, all the goods.
Personal tidbit- I’ve been in the Adult Swim offices. They have AstroTurf for a carpet and huge Space Ghost and Boba Fett costumes. Neat-o.
