DIARRHEA PLANET ON ROLLING STONE'S MUST-SEE LIST March 12 2013, 4 Comments
Our beloved Diarrhea Planet was named today to Rolling Stones "20 Must-See Acts" at SXSW. When there are 2000 bands playing, it must be hard to narrow down to 20. But we feel confident they made the right call! One listen to their debut LP "Loose Jewels" and you'll know why. Here's what RS said: "These Nashville punks play music that's as evocative as their band name, though thankfully less scatological. The band formed in 2009 and came up on the local scene playing dive bars and basements (and the occasional basement dive bar). Diarrhea Planet released a 2009 EP, Aloha, and a 2011 full-length, Loose Jewels, that are, um, packed with synapse-frying rock & roll played at whiplash speed, and laced with plenty of sing-along hooks.

WE LOVE YOU AND YOU LOVE US. THANKS. September 15 2012, 4 Comments
Hi there! Hello! We need to take a moment to tell you how happy you make us. Every week we pack up hundreds of packages and send them on their way to you, and that is very satisfying. Fun, even. So thanks for making our days so very busy with your appreciation for the music we love. We wanna share some amazing reviews with you. For Heavy Cream, Diarrhea Planet, and JEFF The Brotherhood. And on our sister label Plastic 350, Monkey Bowl and Art Circus. Here we go:
Heavy Cream "Super Treatment" "...the mostly female quartet soak their pugnacious brand of garage-rock hellfire with a thick and smelly distortion closely related to that favored by their (figurative) bros in JEFF." - Spin "That intensity pays off on Super Treatment, a fast-paced album that takes a page from classic '70s bands like the Ramones and the Runaways. Recorded in San Francisco with the help of garage rocker Ty Segall on analog equipment a quarter-century old, the tracks capture the energy that the band brings with them to the stage." - Elle "Listening to garage-punk band Heavy Cream is like speeding down the highway at 100 mph: fast, exhilarating, and a little bit dangerous." - Nylon
ROLLING STONE NAMES "CHAMPIONS" EDITORS PICK, NOW ON CD June 26 2011, 3 Comments
Rolling Stone editor David Fricke is loving him some JEFF The Bro-hood. In his Editor's Pick (as in "Our Favorite Songs And Albums Right Now"), he opine's that "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." And now, for those of you living in the future, "We Are The Champions" is now available on a Compact Disc! The Compact Disc (also known as a CD) is an optical disc used to store digital data. It was originally developed to store and playback sound recordings, and lucky for you we have captured all the sounds of "We Are The Champions" right HERE! photo by Pooneh Ghana.
BROTHERHOOD'S "POP-WISE SCUZZ ROCK" MAKES THEM ROLLING STONE FAVE June 02 2011, 2 Comments
ROLLING STONE Magazine declared JEFF The Brotherhood their "band to watch" in THIS POST saying that Jake and Jamin "have been subjecting sweet power-pop melodies to borderline-stoner-rock and outer-space fuzz explosions for nearly a decade now. Their latest release, We Are The Champions – a self-acknowledged breakup album squarely in the tradition of Weezer's Pinkerton, except a lot sludgier – comes out in June on their own Infinity Cat label." And they debuted the Bro's first video for WATC, "Hey Friend". See it at Rolling Stone or check it out without a commercial RIGHT HERE.
BLACKBOOK, ROLLING STONE, SPIN AND MORE: SXSW March 23 2010, 7 Comments
SXSW is over but the tour continues. Here's a few press clippings from this past weekend: "Jeff the Brotherhood tore everyone’s face off with Sabbath-y monster blues metal." (BlackBook)
"Meet my new favorite band this year: Jeff the Brotherhood." (Houston Press)
"Your friendly punk pals find a real soundsystem, walk scrungy line between Melvins and Ramones." (Rolling Stone)
"Are you sick of tight pants, hipster, pseudo-intellectual, neon colored, pitchfork approved music? Look no further than the best new band of this decade who is the straw that should break the back of indie crap music - yes, the one and only Jeff the Brotherhood who is, without a doubt, the best new band of this young decade." (Pop Culture Jihad)
"SXSW is getting its healthy dose of thrash ‘n’ roll today with Nashville brother duo JEFF the Brotherhood. Smoke machine at 11:30 in the morning? We’ve had earlier, actually, but none that have rocked as hard!" (KEXP)
"A much better duo were Jeff the Brotherhood from the home of country, Nashville. What they do is take a dose of 'country' music, scuzz it up, speed it up and amplify it until the drums and guitar combo is blasting full pelt" (BBC)
"the crowd crammed into the Panache party was pretty gaga for these dudes with their thick, classic riffage" (San Francisco Weekly)
"I got frozen out of seeing Nashville riff rock duo Jeff the Brotherhood because the club had reached capacity by the time I arrived. Bad for me, good sign for the band, which has a real charisma and gift for combining punkish energy with stoner stomping." (Spin)
