One of the more ingeniously titled holiday albums you'll run across, JD McPherson's Socks is a jubilantly rockin' production, rife with humor and the Oklahoma-born singer's knack for old-school '50s R&B. For McPherson fans, and anyone familiar with his 2010 flagship single "North Side Gal," Socks will be a pleasant yuletide surprise. While the album certainly evokes the tinsel and Tin Pan Alley vibe of Christmas' pop music past, there isn't a standard to be found here. Instead, McPherson has conceived an all-original album put together with as much care and attention as he applies to his main, non-holiday-related releases. Joining him is his longtime backing ensemble featuring bassist Jimmy Sutton, keyboardist Raynier Jacob Jacildo, drummer Jason Smay, and saxophonist/guitarist Doug Corcoran. Together, they dive headlong into a set of foot-tapping anthems like "All the Gifts I Need" and the McPherson/Nicole Atkins co-write "Every Single Christmas," that wouldn't sound out of place blasting out of a 1949 Mercury, or a turntable next to a flamingo pink Christmas tree. With his highly resonant voice and talent for writing snappy, hook-filled songs, McPherson is always the focal point of his albums, but he wouldn't be such a fully realized performer on record if not for his band. So it's nice to see that he has written many of these songs with his bandmates, including pairing with Corcoran on the Louis Jordan jumper "Hey Skinny Santa," teaming with Smay on the Sun Studios-perfect "Santa's Got a Mean Machine," and collaborating with Jacildo on the cheeky "Holly, Carol, Candy & Joy." Elsewhere, he strikes a tone of cheerful novelty, snuggling into the Elvis-in-Hawaii-sounding "Ugly Sweater Blues" and duetting with Lucie Silvas on the saucy, stroll-ready "Claus vs. Claus." Socks is a durable holiday gift, but one that's immensely more fun and enjoyable than its wry title implies. © Matt Collar /TiVo

Cette intro à la Come On Everybody dit tout ! Aucune tromperie sur la marchandise avec le bien nommé Let The Good Times Roll : retour vers le futur du rock’n’roll, du vrai ! Avec JD McPherson, les fantômes d’Eddie Cochran et Little Richard sortent des armoires. Car ce rocker de Tulsa en Oklahoma réussit l'exploit de faire un second disque (encore meilleur que le premier) où rock’n’roll, rockabilly, jive et rhythm & blues se carambolent avec intelligence et efficacité. Adoubé par Josh Homme de QOTSA et Dan Auerbach des Black Keys, McPherson est un sérieux concurrent à ces esthètes à la James Hunter qui reluquent droit devant avec leur œil droit et regarde dans le rétro avec le gauche… Le rock, c’était mieux avant ?

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. That said, McPherson actually draws from a wide and eclectic array of influences including Son House, Charlie Feathers, the Wu-Tang Clan, and sundry blues and soul artists from Guitar Slim to Sam Cooke. The through-line that ties all of these influences together is McPherson's powerful and robust voice, which balances the shouter style of mid-century legends like Lloyd Price with a smoother, more controlled approach that falls somewhere between Gene Vincent and Clyde McPhatter. McPherson is a singer/songwriter in the truest sense, and his original tunes are a cut above the average retro-rockabilly artist both melodically and lyrically. Such songs as the driving, Twist-ready leadoff single, "North Side Gal," and the explosive album closer, "Scandalous," bring to mind jukebox-fueled impromptu dance parties. Which isn't to say McPherson is merely interested in old-school sounds. On the contrary, tunes like the bluesy, spiritual-inspired title track (which borrows the Smiths' oscillating guitar intro from "How Soon Is Now") and the soul-blues dirge "A Gentle Awakening" with its symphonic strings and piano background bring to mind classic '60s cuts by Ray Charles, as well as contemporary numbers by Alicia Keys. The album does benefit greatly from the vintage, live-recording aesthetic that Sutton and engineer Alex Hall have perfected over the years with other similarly inclined bands like the Four Charms and the Del Moroccos. It also doesn't hurt that McPherson is backed here by a bevy of roots musicians including drummer Hall, saxophonist Jonathan Doyle, guitarist Joel Paterson, and others. Ultimately, as the album's conceptual title implies, Signs & Signifiers paints a picture of McPherson as a kind of post-structuralist retro-rocker, living in the moment with one boot in the past and the other boot in the future. © Matt Collar /TiVo

Early in the recording of his third full-length album, 2017's spirited Undivided Heart & Soul, JD McPherson paused the process to take Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme up on his offer to come jam at his studio in what amounted to a kind of creative jump-start -- a way to get the juices flowing again. While it's unclear if anything they played made it onto Undivided Heart & Soul, it certainly sounds like it could have. Rife with gritty R&B tones and a driving punk energy, the album sounds like something QOTSA might have made if they'd come into their own in the '60s garage rock era instead of the alt-rock 2000s. Which means, for longtime McPherson fans, the album feels both familiar and like a conscious attempt to shake things up; not a huge leap off the stylistic cliff, but a dance on the edge nonetheless. Recorded in Nashville's historic RCA studio B with producer Dan Molad, Undivided Heart & Soul once again finds the Oklahoma-born belter joined by longtime bassist and collaborator Jimmy Sutton, as well as his regular touring lineup of pianist/organist Raynier Jacob Jacildo, drummer Jason Smay, and guitarist/saxophonist Doug Corcoran. Making guest appearances are Lucius' Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, Nicole Atkins, and Raconteurs guitarist Jack Lawrence. Also helping McPherson disrupt his own sound here are several songwriting collaborators including nervy pop stalwart Butch Walker, fellow Oklahoman Parker Millsap, and former Semi Precious Weapons-guitarist-turned Nashville-psych-singer/songwriter Aaron Lee Tasjan. The result is that McPherson's brand of vintage Americana sounds even more stylistically cross-pollinated. Cuts like the lushly romantic "Hunting for Sugar" and the driving "On the Lips" somehow touch upon classic Memphis and Chicago soul sides just as much as they evince '80s Squeeze and the edgy garage rock of the Strokes. Furthermore, while there are certainly a handful of well-honed chorus hooks here, tracks like the yearning "Jubilee" and the Tommy James-esque "Under the Spell of City Lights" deftly subvert anticipation with downplayed choruses that come just a hair later than you'd expect. These are subtle shifts that speak to McPherson's ever-growing songcraft. Thankfully, what hasn't changed is his knack for crafting memorable pop hooks, as evidenced by the Eddie Cochran-esque groover "Crying's Just a Thing That You Do," and the acidically bluesy "Lucky Penny." Both are kinetic anthems that make great use of McPherson's highly resonant, bell-tone vocals and strikingly literate lyrics. A former art teacher who grew up on a ranch, McPherson has always distinguished himself as both imagistic poet and dirt-on-his-boots troubadour. It's a dichotomy that informs much of Undivided Heart & Soul. On "Crying's Just a Thing That You Do," he sings "You're sipping your Darjeeling/And staring at the ceiling/You dream about it splitting in two," and later "I kinda held my head down for most of the ride/Skimming through Rossetti and Poe." Arty tropes aside, with Undivided Heart & Soul, McPherson continues to pull all of his varied stylistic influences together into his own vibrantly coherent brand of visceral, emotive rock that grabs you by the collar and demands your passion. © Matt Collar /TiVo
