Instruments spotted at a Jones Street Station show could include but are not limited to the following: Mandolin, Harmonica, Guitar, Bass, Piano, Drums, Banjo, Washboard, Accordion, Dobro, Rhodes, Analog Synths, and lots of four-part harmonies. This show will be special because they’ll add the talents of some of their friends from the NYC bluegrass scene and LA’s The GIRLS, who will be in town for their first NY show ever.

Their new EP, “The Understanding,” showcases the group’s characteristic song-driven fusion of folk, rock, and vocal harmony. It features the trumpet playing of CJ Camerieri (Bon Iver and The National) and to celebrate the EP’s release, JSS teamed up with their good friend Danny Pudi (Abed on NBC’s Community) to make a video that captures the group’s love for New York City, good friends, creativity, and adequate bourbon.

“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.” – Paste Magazine
