# Station is a psychedelic space rock / melodic indie pop / jazzy-emo-prog-core act, bred from the ashes of some great college bands at a chicken coop converted to a practice space in Kent, Ohio. Formed in 1999, this somewhat unknown Midwestern three-piece is one of the best underground acts in the area. Their new self-released album, that's self-titled # Station, is compiled with honest and passionate feelings through thoughtful lyrics and music. The album is an obscure gem filled with psychedelic indie rock tunes that will leave you wondering where this band has been hiding. Their strong sound perfectly compliments the melodies carried out by James Welding's breathless and wistful voice combined with Ian Penter’s strong blues-punk intonations. Their insightful and sometimes heart-on-my sleeve lyrics pull you into their world of living in a college town while trying to have fun and be successful in love, life, and music. # Station brings a splendid balance and unpretentious honesty that has been missing in this arena. So, sit back and take it all in.
The members of the trio and all the instruments they play on the album are:
Ian Penter - Drums, Jupiter-6, organ, bull-horn, walkie-talkies, voice, bass, guitar, banjo
Jay Steinhauer - Bass, Jupiter-6, ms-20, voice
