Kobo Town's Jumbie in the Jukebox Is Now Available!

 
Release day has finally arrived for Kobo Town's stunning new album Jumbie in the Jukebox. While those of you in Europe may have to wait a little bit longer before the album hits the stores, for the rest of us the album can be found in stores and online today. Here are a few links to order Jumbie in the Jukebox now:

The rave reviews have already started to roll in for Jumbie in the Jukebox, so rather then tell you what we think of the album, here's what the critics are saying:
“In the true calypso tradition, Gonsalves is a writer first and foremost, penning erudite rhymes that comment on news, the economic order and the human condition. He and his band, who have been together since 2004, start with a classic calypso sound and add elements of reggae, dancehall and rock to it. This is what a meeting of Mighty Sparrow and Andy Palacio would sound like. These guys are really onto something."
--Global A Go-Go
 
"The record is packed with songs that are optimistic, energetic and upbeat while maintaining a level of intelligence about them. Kobo Town is rooted in activism and politics but cover it all with sunshine and love. Jumble In The Jukebox is the melding of island influences and modern musical techniques that sound authentic despite being uniquely Canadian. If anything, Jumble In The Jukebox illustrates the influence and prevalence of island music in the world. I thoroughly enjoyed this record; it's lighthearted feel and intelligence made it an absolute joy to jump in line with." 
-- PopStereoReviews

"Ça peut paraître drôlement cliché de dire d’un disque qu’il est l’album idéal pour l’été qui s’en vient. N’empêche qu’il est difficile de ne pas taper du pied, de ne pas penser fun, danse, coolitude et sangria lorsqu’on écoute cette musique-là. Mélange inégal, mais assumé de calypso, roots, de dub et de reggae, ce disque qui résonne de critique sociale comme un reportage dans le tiers-monde est l’œuvre de Drew Gonsalves, un Torontois né à Port-of-Spain. Mais il doit la moitié de son groove à un réalisateur du Bélize, le sorcier blanc Ivan Duran."
-- Voir Montreal

"It is refreshing to have a group like Kobo Town emerge with such a vintage, yet relevant sound. Gonsalves has created a world void of pretense and packed with the most primal emotion; heart. Through the reality of Jumbie In The Jukebox, as any good music should, you can close your eyes and be transported to another time and place and sincerely feel the message.  The trip taken with Kobo Town is very much worth your time and the journey is unforgettable." 
-- Nanobot Rock Reviews
