The Daily Choice: Jeff The Brotherhood – Shredder
A friend this weekend pulled me aside and told me, “Dude, this band sounds exactly like The Blue Album-era Weezer.” To which my ears perked. And yes, JEFF The Brotherhood, on a smattering of tracks on their stellar new album We Are The Champions sounds like some modern hybrid of lo-fi garage rock and the suburban melodies of Weezer. In the best way. Here, on the new single “Shredder”, the trappings of Cuomo have been shed, and JEFF The Brotherhood tear, rip, destroy their way in to a blistering two and a half minutes of metal-fueled rock ‘n’ roll. ”Shredder” is as apt a name as any you’ll hear this year.
Combine tracks like these with the aforementioned jaunts down Weezer Lane, and this JEFF The Brotherhood album is looking to be a standout.
We Are The Champions releases on the band’s own Infinity Cat Records in June.
