This Song: JR JR

JR JR  has been making catchy indie pop music for the better part of the decade.  But where did this hook-laden infectious music come from? Listen in as the band members recount how their experiences with live shows by The Grateful Dead, a mysterious glow at a Tonic concert, a case of Led Zeppelin misidentification, the love of Mars Volta noise and playing jazz at a nursing home helped the band find their musical selves. It all wraps up with Josh, Daniel, Bryan and Mike having a moment talking about the real reasons they make music.  Protip — listen all the way to the end. It’s worth it.
