A new tune from favorite, JD McPherson, would definitely perk my ears up a bit, and when I hit play, out shoots a driving, pounding, breathy blues roots track that I totally fell in love with. It’s got a raw, pure feeling to it, like it came out of his guitar on it’s own. It may be more of McPherson’s interpretation of blues-roots, but it feels more authentically his versus a retro-style. Either way, I’m in love, and it’s only whetting my appetite for more.
Look for McPherson’s new record, Let the Good Times Roll, out in February on Rounder Records.
