This week Nashville fuzz-rockers JEFF The Brotherhood announced that they’ve been dropped by Warner Bros. and will be releasing the upcoming Wasted On The Dream on their own independent label, Infinity Cat.

If we approached this column with a more literal set of guidelines, there’s a good chance you would see a different list before you, one including five songs from Sleater-Kinney’s No Cities To Love. (But which five?!) That album’s not in stores till next week, but we got the stream this past Sunday, and yes,… More »

Jeff The Brotherhood – “A Dog” + Colleen Green – “Hellraiser”

LAMC is an acronym coined by the late Ariel Panero that stands for Less Artists More Condos — yes, it’s ironic. Brooklyn-based label Famous Class launched a 7″ split series in memory of Panero, and they’re currently on their fifteenth release, which is a doozy.

JEFF The Brotherhood – “In My Mouth” Video

It’s been a great year for puppeteers trying to break through in the music video world.

Stream JEFF The Brotherhood Wasted On The Dream

If Weezer ever attempted to go full-on stoner-metal, the result might sound something like Nashville hesher brothers JEFF The Brotherhood’s new album Wasted On The Dream. The duo made the album with major-label money, but Warner Bros. dropped them before its release, just in time for them to put it out on their own. And… More »

JEFF The Brotherhood – “What’s A Creep”

Last we heard from the Nashville duo JEFF The Brotherhood, they were covering My Bloody Valentine. It’s been awhile since the band released new material, but today they unleashed the snarling, tounge-in-cheek, vaguely holiday-themed “What’s A Creep.” There is not a jingle bell to be found on the song, but there are some allusions to… More »

Watch JEFF The Brotherhood Play Conan

Last night, Conan played host to Nashville’s fired-up fraternal fuzz-rock duo JEFF The Brotherhood. The band bashed their way through “Staring At The Wall,” an admirably choogling track from their new album Hypnotic Nights, as singer/guitarist Jeff Orrall modeled an amazingly dirtbaggy mustache/humping-reindeer cap/Pentagram shirt ensemble and a friend came through to play a flute… More »
