Audio Crush - JD McPherson


I'm crazy for JD McPherson's vibe and his songs makes me swear that I'm listening to a great old record from back in the day. In order to get the amazing "I've been listening to this record for decades (and had to buy a new copy because the grooves wore off of the first one)" sound on this album, he and his folks used vintage amps, microphones and a 1960's reel-to-reel recorder. All analog. Because, hello. Yes.

WOW! That was awesome. I believe that's Jimmy Sutton's recording studio. I know he collects vintage recording equipment. Gotta get me a J.D. McPherson CD.

Yay, isn't he the greatest, we stumbled onto him in the back of one of Chucky's hot rod magazines a few years ago! We play his solo album & the albums from his old band The Starkweather Boys in the tattoo shop pretty much non-stop, it's perfect mood music for Chucky when he's working. We're actually going to see him on the 4 of June & cannot wait!
