Turpentine (Hole cover)

    Nashville punk siblings Jake and Jamin Orrall — otherwise known as JEFF the Brotherhood — have teamed up with labelmates Hell’s Beach to produce a limited edition 7″ split featuring covers of Hole songs by both groups. Hell’s Beach tackles the Courtney Love-fronted outfit’s first-ever single, “Teenage Whore” while JEFF takes on the lesser-known “Turpentine.”

    JEFF’s interpretation of “Turpentine” stays relatively true to form, even capturing the drawn-out Courtney Love caterwauls so integral to the original record.  The only deviation from the Hole version comes in the form of several characteristically JEFF the Brotherhood sludge-filled solos that creep in at various points during the track — and it doesn’t sound half bad.

    Stream the track below and pick up the 7″ on Infinity Cat’s website.
