Hailing from San Diego, CA Brother Weiss is a three piece rock group who recently released their debut EP entitled Conversations. This is the type of EP that will satisfy fans of contemporary indie rock as well classic rock. The EP tips its hat to bands like My Morning Jacket, Led Zeppelin, and The Strokes. The five songs have excellent production and captured the energy of the band. It often bursts with confidence and sounds huge. After you you are done rocking out to a couple of their songs you will want to get out of the house and see Brother Weiss in concert.
The band isn't breaking new barriers and doesnt experiment much but it doesn't matter cause they rock so damn hard throughout the EP.
The lead singer and bassist Miguel Ramirez has a great voice almost anyone can appreciate and it seems to be conducive for rock. He doesn't sound like an Eddie Vedder clone or that dude from Nickelback. His voice usually soars with optimism and contains a kinetic energy that makes you get behind the words that he is singing.
Ryan Weiss provides the inventive guitar parts while Kevin Weiss implements precision type drumming that is an integral part of the music.The bass parts on the record are most foundational providing root notes for the song. It sounds appropriate against the thunderous and versatile guitar parts.
The EP knocks you on your ass immediately with “Conversations” which was the highlight of the record. This song has dash of my morning jacket mixed with Warrant. The music makes you feel like a badass even if you aren't one. “Light Bulb” treads on more of a melodic indie rock vibe while ‘The shortcut” has some very impressive drum work. The EP ends with “Armory” which combines effective vocal harmonies, melodic guitar parts and arguably the catchiest vocal part on the EP.
Brothers Weiss delivered a polished five song EP that displays their songwriting as well as chemistry. There really isnt much to criticize here. The band is on point.
