Critical Mass

by Michael Tedder

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.
