Any band that names a song “Bone Jam” probably wants to melt faces. That’s certainly the aim of Jeff The Brotherhood, a pair of hard-partying brothers from Tennessee whose 2009 debut, Heavy Days, could be fairly said to shred. But the brothers bring more than just furious solos to their tight compositions: There’s a strain of power pop that runs through the songs, with vocal harmonies laced throughout arrangements that otherwise rumble and churn. Their 2011 follow-up, We Are The Champions, is clearly inspired by the foregone “classic” Weezer, but Champions’ appeal isn’t its originality, but rather its songwriting. On every track, Jeff The Brotherhood enters briskly, states its piece concisely, and gets the hell out before the rush wears off.
