“Folksy, Americana, singer/songwriter, fiddle-burni... Folksy, Americana, singer/songwriter, fiddle-burnin' and string pluckin' are The Brothers Comatose. They are a music writer's adjective creatin' wet dream. ”

“the real charmers were the Brothers Comatose, who...laid the twang on thick, with rhythmic mandolin and guitar, shredded banjo, and exceptional fiddle-fied violin and melodic upright bass. They were the honest gentleman’s scuffed leather, an antidote to the shoe-polish show downstairs.”

“'Songs From the Stoop' is Jeff's Pick for best full length album for road trips in 2010. 'Swamp Jam' is Jeff's Pick for best way to end a perfect album in 2010. 'Dead Flowers' is Jeff's Pick for best cover of 2010, and best cover of 'Dead Flowers' ever, straight up (take a hike New Riders). ”

“Everything about this disc is, well, honest. Wheth... Everything about this disc is, well, honest. Whether raucous, snarky, rave-up, or just happily boogy be-boppin' from track to track, what you hear is exactly what the Brothers Comatose are... Ben and Alex Morrison really are birth brothers and have been musicians since the post-embryo days. It took a while to find the right complements to their work, but, as of the last most inclusion of classically trained Phil Brezina, who knows how to shuck Paganini at a moment's notice, everything settled into the right configuration and began bringing San Francisco a mean mess of good-time roots music. ”

The sound is mountain, the style is community, the results are infectious. “Down to the River” is a commitment in playing, singing and lyrical intentions. Like the narrator, The Brothers Comatose drown themselves in the delivery. “Legacy” has a gypsy feel to it, “Swamp Jam” bends and slides along like thick fog and opener “Trippin on Down’ is a bluegrass driven affair. “Church Street Blues” pays homage to The Brothers city of choice while reminiscing about homes of the past. They tackle and conquer a Rolling Stones track, “Dead Flowers”. The song begins with just a banjo and a voice and builds as friends take their stoop seats. East Coast, West Coast....’Songs From The Stoop’ proves that the only geography that matters if the one where muse and music hang out. ”

In Songs from the Stoop, the debut CD from The Brothers Comatose, the band has captured much of the joie de vivre of their live shows on a studio recording. This is a band that doesn't fit into a handy category like bluegrass, country or rockabilly but it is definitely Americana. Footstompabilly perhaps? ”
