"the height of backyard-rock-excellence. I think the best way to describe them would be that they are a total bro band." - The New York Rockmarket
"JEFF The Brotherhood is Jake and Jamin Orrall, two brothers that play drums and guitar. They grew up in Tennessee making music and trying to have a good time. Since their inception they have been playing anywhere from house parties to rooftops, backyards, bars and art galleries and releasing their own records, tapes, comic books and home made videos.
The Brotherhood has been called "kraut punk", "psychedelic grunge" and "noise pop" drawing comparisons to bands like Hawkwind, Wipers, and early Sonic Youth." - Panache

"Coin Under Tongue might be one of the best band names ever."- Audio Current
"Then, as they slowly emerged from the murk, the band cranked out some of the heaviest, nastiest post-hardcore I've ever heard. The distorted bass crashes through like a drunk mammoth but the man behind the sound, George Wilson (oddly enough, formerly of slowcore dream-pop outfit Dirty on Purpose) is anything but clumsy, shredding some deliciously difficult riffs. The similarly-lumbering guitar cuts like a slow-motion buzz saw while Joe Kelly howls death metal renditions of secretly lovable melodies. I was also pleasantly surprised by the variety the band offered, some songs more gentle or even downright pretty, some faster and post-punkier, some cleaner and some noisier - you'd be hard put to accuse this band of always sounding the same." - Radio Flyer Review

You made it! Welcome to the Death By Audio Records Store.
We know it must be hard to decide what to buy with all these choices.
It may be easier to just roll a six sided die.Founded in 2008 by Pterodactyl drummer Matt Marlin and Skeleton$ keyboardist Mike Gallope, STARRING revisits the terrain of progressive rock by distilling it to its essence. Starring plays “prog rock” because they are in love with a sense of unscripted fun, looking to spit beer, exhilarate and electrify rather than be like "dude, check my chops.". Starring combines the forces of farfisa, viola, guitar and bass to sculpt driving, heavy, high-speed sound guns aimed at stealth bomber choruses. Beneath it all, Matt Marlin’s notoriously frenzied drumming, propels this distortion-addicted quintet from one transfixing riff to the next.
GROOMS - REJOICER - (DBA-005)
SISTERS 1st EP (DBA - 001)This is Sisters first EP ever. It was recorded at the DBA studio by Oliver Ackermann, world renowned dart thrower and champion coffee maker.
They are painstakingly screen printed in our very own dirty ass loft. Get 'em before you change your mind or we all all killed by heavy rains. Guaranteed to have at least 5 songs. Or, as one person put it, "2 NEW KIDS EX NEW SCHOOL PLAYING WICKED BAD ASS BREAK BEATS WITH GOOD HOOKS AND NOT MUCH HONKY TONK. MATT CONBOY AND AARON PFANNEBACKER KICK OUT 7 SONGS OF MINDBENDEDNESS"
$5.00 Including Shipping! COIN UNDER TONGUE 1st LP -COIN UNDER TONGUE/HUSSIES AT BAY (DBA-002)
Real ink was pushed through actual screens and then the sleeve was thrown on the fucking dirty-ass floor. The story of redneck transplants making a record under ultrashitty Brooklyn conditions . Or, as one dude put it, "A WHOLE LIFETIME IN THE MAKING, THIS TITULATING AUDIO STUNTWORK WILL BLOW YOUR HEAD. POP THESE SONGS AND GET EMO WITH THE BAND. HEAVY LIKE A BAG OF WEIGHTS. LIGHT ON THE RASTA. FULL THROTTLE THROATS GALORE. SOMEBODY DIED SOMEWHERE ON THIS RECORD- VERY RARE! RECORDED BY CUT AT DBA IN AMERICA. 450 PRESSED & INSERTED IN HAND SCREEN PRINTED SLEEVES (COLORS WILL VARY)" ORDER THE COIN UNDER TONGUE DOUBLE EP @ INSOUNDDeath By Audio Records have teamed up with our tight bros. from down south, Infinity Cat Recordings, on this split 7". This round vinyl object contains the song by Sisters,"Highway Scratch". It was recorded by Joe Kelly in the DBA Studio, mastered by Ollie Ackermann, and printed on one side. The other side contains a JEFF: The Brotherhood song, "Mind Ride" to be specific. This record gets played so often at the loft that we think some people may be getting sick of it. More likely, it's the asbestos pipes making them sick, but whatever.
ALL SOLD OUT!!!We had big plans for the future for this Doom Pop squad, but right now we have 20 tapes. We had 50 but 30 were stolen! And then Adam done went and signed to some other label and all we have left are faded memories and like 15 more of these tapes. If his talents were athletes at an Olympic event, he'd have to take up 4 tracks on a 3 man relay race. And that's just a summer event! this tape is like a grab bag- I can't really say what's on it because I don't have one of those old tape machines from the Ice Age, but just look at it. It's screenprinted at least 3X. The music is surely FUCT UP. What else do you expect from a man who collaborated with a Playstation? Also, these tapes smell great, like a new deck of notecards. SOLD OUT!!!
