Description

If theres a way to go straight forward while looking backward, JD McPherson has found it. McPherson delivers a dozen straight ahead, no-nonsense R&B rockers on Signs and Signifiers, all with an eye on rock and rolls formative decade. To be sure, this is no regression, just an exercise in honouring the past without falling into a nostalgia trip. With a voice that calls to mind Little Richard, McPherson joyfully belts out songs designed to get feet on the dance floor. While it would be easy to shoot for a sound that captures an era and miss, McPhersons aim is true. Hes not singing about malt shops, sock hops or any other number of ´50s archetypes, yet he has managed to capture the feel of rock and roll music from a bygone era. Signs and Signifiers is R&B that honours its roots. The themes are timeless, the band is tight and McPherson has a voice too big to contain in a museum piece.
