After a busy year spent scoring the indie feature film "Hello Lonesome," recording a new album, and sharing stages with such notable acts as Ben Kweller, Brett Dennen, Grace Potter, Deertick, and Manchester Orchestra, Jones Street Station returns with a new song, "The Understanding."
Known for their unique take on traditional Americana, the band expands their sound on "The Understanding" incorporating horn playing and arrangements by CJ Camerieri (The National, Sufjan Stevens, and David Byrne).
Of all the bands Brooklyn has produced in recent years, rarely has the borough birthed an Americana-rock love child like Jones Street Station. But this isn't just Appalachia-on-the-Hudson—the band is just as fond of rockstar timbres and synths as it is mandolin, banjo licks and harmonica. We're not the first to liken them to a little band called Wilco, and we'd humbly submit the folk/pop stylings of The Avett Brothers and the jamboree ethos of Akron/Family for comparison as well."
