It’s been over six years since Burger Records put out an album from Jaill (then called just Jail). The California-based label put out the then three-piece Milwaukee group’s debut LP, There’s No Sky (Oh My My), and today the label announced they will release Jaill’s latest album, Brain Cream on June 30.
This is after two very well received albums, That’s How We Burn and Traps, via Sub Pop records. The albums placed Jaill in the indie rock spotlight and the band toured continuously around North American and Europe. The band has seen some changes, with front man Vincent Kircher being the only founding member left. Josh Evert (of Fatty Acids) has taken over drums, Mike Scorcz (of John The Savage) plays keys and Jonathan Mayer (of Surgeons in Heat) provides bouncing bass lines and falsetto harmonies.
The band convened at Louie Lino-run Resonate Studios in Austin late in 2013 to record the new album. After about two weeks, the band left with what will be Jaill’s most thorough and mature album to date, showcased with the band’s lead single “Got An F” – streaming above.
