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 it’s interesting to hear studio sheen on a set of songs that would’ve worked perfectly fine as murky lo-fi garage recordings. We’ve posted the early tracks “What A Creep,” “Coat Check Girl,” and “Black Cherry Pie,” the latter of which has flute from Jethro Tull leader Ian Anderson. And now you can stream the whole LP at NPR.
Wasted On The Dream is out 3/24 on the band’s own Infinity Cat label.
