I love the people who read ninebullets. I get some of the coolest suggestions from you guys. Such is the case with this little rockabilly band out of Oklahoma.
Now, when I say rockabilly I’m sure you’re thinking about the Horton Heats and whatnot of the world. but JD McPherson is far more authentic than any of those guys. Signs and Signifiers sounds like it came straight out of the pre-British Invasion rock and roll scene. Even the production has been kept at a minimum so that the songs maintain a raw and authentic sound and feel.
It’s damned near impossible to listen to this album and not smile. It’s not an attempt to be old school for old school’s sake, it feels honest. Personally, I’d take this over the Reverend Horton Heat any day of the week.
So, thank you ninebullets readers for your musical suggestions, and thank you JD McPherson for an album that’s Essential Listening.
