This Toronto trio is definitely playing outside the lines and breaking all the rules. Best of luck categorizing this breed of rock from guitar/vocalist Brent Jackson, bassist Matthew Jameson and dummer Michael Taylor. The Junction's self-titled album begins with the hard rocking opener "Station Me" then smoothly and nearly flawlessly shifts into alt-rock emo sounds and indie-rock territory.
