JEFF the Brotherhood- “Hey Friend”

The opening track from Tennessee sludge-rockers JEFF the Brotherhood’s album “We Are the Champions”  opens with a stuttering air horn blast that would not be out of place kicking off a Drake single.

It is quickly followed by lurching muddy, guitar before shifting gears toward a much sparser sound.

The song is an interesting expression of lust and jealousy for the different members of a friend’s family.

Some examples include: “I’ve been thinking about your mom/ You can tell me if it’s really wrong”, “I’ve been thinking about your sister/You can tell me if I shouldn’t kiss her” and “I’ve been thinking about your dad/ You can tell me if it’s really bad.”

If you’re looking for a genuine laugh, some genre subversion and some great guitar work “Hey Friend” is a solid choice.
