Third Ear Candy
There is only one Brother JT. Any psychedelic/garage/underground rock 'n' roll enthusiast knows this man from Bethlehem who bangs to his own lysergic drum - the one who came from '80s Back from the Grave revivalists the Original Sins and entered the solo world through the ultra-limited edition records on the now legendary Twisted Village label. Over the last three decades he has defined the underground aesthetic, and his new record finds him still in peak songwriting and recording form. Third Ear Candy, his latest release on Birdman Records, is danceable, trance-able, romance-able and oh-so-very hallucinatory (-able). This slab of digital wax has a little more moog than usual, a little more groove. There is a reason why Arthur Magazine, Mojo, Ptolmeaic Terrescope, and hundreds of blogs call his name the defining voice of home-made psychedelia. He is that good and that consistent.
