JD McPherson – Let The Good Times Roll

  • April 8, 2015

JD McPherson was the breakout artist on the 2010 roots music scene with his debut album, Signs & Signifiers – an album that combines a toe-tapping mix of modern and vintage rock and roll, rockabilly and R&B sounds. McPherson’s resonant voice and vintage analog production sound (the latter courtesy of bassist/collaborator/studio guru Jimmy Sutton) are back on his sophomore release, Let the Good Times Roll, but this time around hosting a little more diversity on the arrangements and production. A few standouts include: the R&B “Mother of Lies”; the ballad “Bridgebuilder”; the Spector-esque “You Must Have Met Little Caroline?”; the hip shaker “Shy Boy”; and the swinging closer, “Everybody’s Talking ‘Bout The All-American.” Let the Good Times Roll plays like a vintage jukebox classic hit list and will please fans of Signs & Signifiers. And as the title implies, it’s also one hell of a good time. – Written by JFelton
