Damn, this is going to be a difficult review to write. My legs are demanding a wander across the floor, while my hands are busy with the beat. Molotov Jukebox hit every check-box and sweet-spot. Sublime vocal is melded with musical proficiency and this combines with a freshnesss of sound. I look outside and instead of seeing a low lying cloud, I have a carnival going past the window.

This is not an easy sound to put together, but Molotov Jukebox have that knack of ensuring the melody bounces against the interruptions with precision timing, all held together by an enjoyable vocal. A plethora of instruments are garnered and the band relay to the ears a vibrating space in which to slide. Trumpets herald triumphant entries and all the while the audience really won’t want to be supine. I feel the need to redefine a word here – supertwist – currently a reference to a type of LCD refracted light and snaffle it to describe it as latin ska.

Thank you Molotov Jukebox for what you do and long may you do it.
