Jeff the Brotherhood successfully combine a blasting Ramones-style force (GREAT starting point) with a crunchy guitar tone not unlike 90s-era Weezer. Imagine loads of 8th note hi-hats and downstroke riffage married with spaced out stoner rock guitar solos. This is Jeff the Brotherhood. OK, how about this… Imagine the first Queens of the Stone Age record but with a massive bubblegum sensibility. Get it yet?
These guys are great and they’re playing @ TT the Bear’s on June 21st. Get hip!

ATTN: Reggae Heads and/or Cassette Nerds.
On my weekly visit to In Your Ear Records, I discovered that they’ve just acquired a MASSIVE amount of reggae on cassette. Good stuff too!!! Everything from rocksteady to dub (didn’t see any dancehall). Everything was in really good condition and priced at 3-4 bux. Spread the word.
Remember… summertime = reggae.

Just picked this LP up last night after Heavy Cream opened for Hunx and his Punx at Great Scott. Fun show. Fun times.
Heavy Cream… Imagine if the Runaways were a bit faster and Joan Jett always had her way. If you wanna call “Danny” a punk rock record, that’s fine by me. If not, Also fine. I’m not bothered. It hits hard, it blasts through, it’s fun and it’s catchy. Also, Heavy Cream’s drummer is REALLY GOOD. Get hip!

Magnetix are rock royalty over in the European garage scene. Funny thing, I hadn’t realized they were a 2-piece until I saw (and opened for) them last night @ Great Scott. Guitarist, Looch Vibrato rocks lots of reverb/delay/loops to create a VERY full guitar sound. I suppose this is why I hadn’t realized there were a duo. Makes total sense. They were fun last night… hence the record purchase. Get into it.

You gotta keep busy, right? Right. In addition to working on our Spring Launch(hold tight, kiddies), I’ve done ALL this within the past two CRAZILY busy days:
1. Doctor’s visit. Boring but essential for survival, right?
2. Tattoo work by Josh McAlear at Redemption Tattoo.
3. Grilled cheese and chocolate milk at Andy’s Diner. Because… I’m an adult.
4. New RAW hat purchased at their (skate)shop in Somerville.
5. Mixing work on the upcoming ExPlanets EP.
6. Mexican food AND live Mexican music at El Poltro(good grub!).
7. White Pages and Radio Control at PA’s Lounge.
8. Couple drinks at ZuZu w/ DJ KNIFE.
9. 16bit supplying massive bass music at Middle East.
OK. Only one TBA show at this point. I’m guessing it will be somewhere on the West Coast.
I’m thinking of trying to get to the Philadelphia and/or Pittsburgh shows. Who want’s to go?!?!
