- NEW BROTHER JT VINYL ON THRILL JOCKEY IN 2013
Not a great deal going on in the Bro-niverse just now. Sun comes up, goes down a little later, people are nice. Come springtime 2013, however, we are pleased to hope that the esteemed Chicago based indie label Thrill Jockey Records will be releasing the latest Brother JT album, THE SVELTENESS OF BOOGIETUDE on 12" vinyl and digital download.
The recording, which features JT's first use of actual strings (violin by Rachel Lambdin) on several songs, as well as substantial sax contributions from Dave Smith, was recorded in the winter of 2011-12, and semi-released in CDR form around Easter of this year. In additon, we hope that with the LP's release on Thrill Jockey, Brother JT can actually manage to do a little touring in support of what we feel is one of his better efforts.
"T Rex Blues", a track from the album, can be streamed from the music player.
In other news, the reconstituted Original Sins, featuring Jamie Mahon (bs), and Mike Kiker(org) from the Philly trio St James & the Apostles, as well as stalwart timekeeper Jamie Knerr, look forward to renewing old ties with the legendary Swinging Neckbreakers when they share a bill with them at Bowery Electric in NYC Thursday September 27--see shows for more details.
