Brother JT - Tornado Juice
Brother JT, aka the enigmatic John Terlesky, has returned with a mind palace of an album entitled ‘Tornado Juice’. On his second album for Thrill Jockey, JT feverishly concocts songs drawing from influences like gutbucket blues to power-pop, classic rock to garage psych.
Brother JT is Central, PA’s John Terlesky who since the early 90’s has been exploring experimental and psychedelic rock music with releases on labels such as Drag City, Drunken Fish, Siltbreeze and Birdman. Terlesky’s songwriting and ample guitar skills take a decidedly psychedelic form but never deviate too far from the classic song structure.

“Brother JT sounds like a nervous Pentecostal preacher screaming atop a warped copy of Easter Everywhere from the 13th Floor Elevators.” - Philadelphia City Paper
“If you don’t like any of the quirky and off-kilter sounds Brother JT produces... you, my friend, are legally deceased.” - The Vinyl District
