JD McPherson interview and live performance in the Bing Lounge at 101.9 KINK.FM. Portland, OR.
Hailing from Broken Arrow, OK, the former art teacher and his band traveled to Chicago to record Signs and Signifiers at Hi-Style studio, which is housed in the attic of producer/bassist/studio owner Jimmy Sutton’s home and is 100% analog. “I have recorded this style of music in the digital realm, and it just doesn’t quite “sing” as much. Slamming that ¼” tape really hard produced the most beautiful distortion I’ve ever heard,” says McPherson. jdmcpherson.com
