Watch Brother JT’s Hallucinatory ‘Sweatpants’ Video
The Original Sins mastermind continues to mystify with a clip from his forthcoming Thrill Jockey debut, 'The Svelteness of Boogietude'
Brother JT is the nom de plume of John Terlesky, founder of much beloved, long defunct Bethelehem, Pennsylvania garage-punk foursome the Original Sins. Tomorrow, Terlefsky will release The Svelteness of Boogietude, his first LP under his solo moniker for Thrill Jockey. It’s another dazzling platter of high-grade glam, psych and, in the lone case of “Sweatpants,” chopped-and-screwed Southern rap. Not unlike his psychedelic talk show, Trippin’ Balls, it’s a near hallucinatory experience with Terlefsky’s paw prints all over it — he animated every bewildering frame.
