ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SPIN Magazine: "It's as if ace classicist duo Jake and Jamin Orrall built JEFF the Brotherhood's musical DNA from elements of rock's greatest fellow siblings. Their pared-down arrangements and bluesy riffs recall AC/DC's Young brothers and their fun-loving zeal is akin to honorary bros the Ramones. But the secret weapon on their second album is an unironic embrace of the elegant, harmony-rich hooks and wide-eyed lyrics of rock forebears the Righteous Brothers, which gives the Orralls' blistering tunes their own earnest, romantic edge."

Rolling Stone: "These brothers, neither named Jeff, take the punk-blues duo to a new low: Frontman Jake Orrall plays guitar with only three bottom strings. When he and drummer Jamin cut loose in the fuzz bullets "Cool Out" and "Ripper," Jake sounds like Johnny Ramone power-strumming a cello. The Orralls' last effort was rightly called Heavy Days; their songs are often just a couple of chords and high speed. But the brothers have acid on the brain, stirring harmonized distortion and sitar buzz into the boogie. And they back up the balls of this album title: The Blue Cheer-with-Neu! surge of "Mellow Out" is fast bliss."

Pitchfork's Altered Zones: "You can pigeonhole 'em into two categories-- live bands or album bands. JEFF The Brotherhood is first and foremost a live band; they totally went ham last year on their 230-show endurance run through 2010. For you math nuts out there, that means JEFF toured for more than 63% of last year. If I hadn't heard them, their intense touring would tell me that they rule live, but their album probably sucks. Let's face it: it's rare when a band have both on lock. And while the genre has been on the decline for some time now, We Are The Champions is the one of the strongest indie rock albums I've heard this year. While JEFF have built a reputation on slaughtering on stage, the song that actually hits the hardest, "Diamond Way," is one of their softest."

American Songwriter: "Real brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall are Nashville's hottest non-country export at the moment. The former Be Your Own Pet members and sons of songwriter Robert Ellis Orrall, who produced Taylor Swift's self-titled debut, lay down a righteous slab of sludge mixed with poppy-punk moments sure to resonate this summer. The 25-year-old Jake, who sings and plays the three bottom strings on his guitar, and his 23-year-old drummer brother mine the most melodic moments of tar-dripping bands like TAD and Dinosaur Jr., cut it with the psychedelia of the Butthole Surfers and Meat Puppets, and the pure freedom you find in sledgehammer 4/4 punk on their way to a second album that not only supplies a few mind-blowing moments but marks JTB as a band to watch for years to come."
