JD McPherson hears the retro tag a lot, and no wonder: Signs & Signifiers, his debut album premiering exclusively today on RollingStone. com, rocks and rolls like it’s 1955. Listen a little closer, though, and it’s clear the album is not what McPherson calls a time-machine record. Sure, he and producer-bassist Jimmy Sutton drew from vintage R&B and early rock & roll on songs laced with boxy drums, thumping upright bass and slap-echo guitar. But they also mined more modern influences, including, believe it or not, Wu-Tang Clan. Sutton released the album on his own Hi-Style label before Rounder picked it up for wider release this spring. We had planned to make the record almost as an art project in and of itself, McPherson says. We knew we would probably play a couple of weekenders, try to play a couple of shows here and there.
Singer/songwriter JD McPherson's 2010 debut album, Signs & Signifiers, is a rockin', bluesy, forward-thinking album that subtly breaks the conventions of most vintage rock projects. Produced and recorded with the retro expertise of bassist/guitarist Jimmy Sutton, the album is a gold mine of '50s-inspired rock and R&B, with some rockabilly twang thrown in for maximum effect.
