When QRO last checked in on favorite Jones Street Station (QRO spotlight on), they had just come back from going all Hollywood after playing with (recently-renewed) Community‘s Alison Brie (QRO live review) & more – and were embarking on their ambitious ‘Perennials’ project: creating one song a week for a whole year. To benefit various charities. While living scattered across America. It all started with “For a Lifetime” and “Henry Dryer” (QRO review of both), but it was understandable to wonder if they could keep it up.
Well, keep it up they have, passing the half-way mark, and are currently on song #37 (plus a New Year’s bonus song), “What Is the What”. Of course, QRO couldn’t keep up, so we’re just picking one of our favorites, “Roads”, celebratory and evocative like the best of JSS.
Stream “Roads” below & download here – and catch Jones Street Station with Alison Brie’s The Girls at (le) Poisson Rouge on June 1st – and see Brie name-checking them on The Daily Show (okay, so they’re still a little Hollywood…):
