Small Signals

Stephen Roessner’s recording project Small Signals gives the Grammy-winning drummer and producer welcome chances to stretch out and experiment with unexpected sounds, genres, and source material. The most recent release, Missed Connections, is an expansive tour through the half-cocked attempts of Rochester’s lovelorn creeps to get laid or at least have something put in their butt. By recasting as lyrics the actual text in community please-fuck-me posts, Roessner celebrates baffling expressions of romance, desire, and loneliness, but with astonishing sweetness and humor that says more about our city than we may want to know.
