JEFF The Brotherhood - Upstairs At United, Vol.3 [EP]
On October 18th, 2011, JEFF The Brotherhood joined by William Tyler (Tompkins Square), Loney Hutchins (Cleft Records) and Joey Plunket in recording Volume 3 of the Upstairs at United series. Each song in this session was recorded in a single take direct to ¬ inch tape then cut at 45 RPM for the ultimate listening experience.
JEFF The Brotherhood, the sibling duo of Jake & Jamin Orrall show their prog rock side on this recording. While the recording consists of only three songs those songs totalled enough time that they rocked out until they literally ran out of tape (as can be heard at the end of ''In Space No One Can Hear You Scream, Part II').' While traditionally a two piece, JEFF The Brotherhood, was joined in this session by William Tyler on guitar, Loney Hutchins on keys and crazy space sounds, and Joey Plunket on bass. The recording features an 11 minute version of tour favorite ''I'm A Freak'', an 11 minute cover of Hawkwind's ''Master Of The Universe'' and the 8 minute improvisational jam ''In Space No One Can Hear You Scream''.

Upstairs At United, is an all-analog series of vinyl record releases recorded inside the historic United Record Pressing plant. Each recording is captured directly on analog tape then cut to 12'' EP's at 45 RPM. The records are presented in Kraft-style packaging that highlights the authentic all-analog approach used in making these records, which includes session-specific inserts with color photos from the recording sessions, and come in archival quality resealable poly bags.
The goal of the Upstairs At United series is to not only release beautiful music recorded in a classic all analog style, but also to celebrate the rich musical and cultural history that's taken place inside this 49 year old building. Established in 1949, United Record Pressing is the oldest vinyl record manufacturing facility in America. The doors to its present location first opened in 1962; in response to a then segregated South, United created an apartment above the plant to host the record label executives and artists who were excluded from hotel accommodations due to the color of their skin. This apartment, now called the ''Motown Suite,'' is still furnished in its original d‚cor. Adjacent to the apartment is a large space solely dedicated to hosting record release parties and other events for labels and artists. Among the many, it's believed that this room hosted parties for The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, The Cowsills, Wayne Newton, and a signing party for a 16-year-old Hank Williams, Jr. In addition to existing as a monument to our musical and cultural history, the space upstairs at United Record Pressing continues to host events for artists, labels, and other lovers of music. It is in this sacred space that the Upstairs At United series is being recorded.
The recordings were engineered by Chris Mara and his analog studio Welcome to 1979 located in Nashville, Tennessee. All recordings were done live directly to ¬ inch analog tape using a sixteen channel vintage recording console and vintage microphones and outboard gear, with no overdubs, edits or audio sweetening. What you hear is music in its most pure form: the recordings capture the end product of the artists together in a single room, complete with all of the enthusiasm, spirit and soul that is the foundation for this great art form.
