Certified badasses Jeff the Brotherhood are makers of high-octane riffs and turbo-charged beats that muscle cars were designed for rallying to on the open road. What's most shocking is how much sound the Nashville duo can get out of their barebones setup. But this band of brothers, Jake and Jamin Orrall, make the most out of their finite components (a three-stringed guitar and three-piece kit), sounding like a beefed-up V8 engine that's really a four-cylinder underneath the hood. Their songs, found on their excellent 2009 debut LP Heavy Days, and the just released We Are the Champions (as well as a slew of highly-coveted OOP 7-inch singles), are grungy, raw, and uncompromisingly psychedelic, with powerful melodies that swirl around the brain for days on end and rock ascensions that strap in and floor it, leaving you sitting idle in the place where their trail of burning rubber and asphalt meet.
