[CANADIAN CALYPSO] Canada is not the first country to come to mind when you think of calypso, yet that’s exactly the kind of music frontman Drew Gonsalves and his eight-piece band of Trinidadian expats channels on their sophomore effort, Jumbie in the Jukebox. Gonsalves, a Port of Spain native until he relocated at age 13, has always had a soft spot for his homeland. The result of his nostalgia is a swinging piece of modernized calypso that bobs between folky Caribbean pop and lax reggae on the cusp of hip-hop. Brass-heavy choruses and West-Indian percussion swamp the album, while Gonsalves’ wry vocal delivery and droll commentary tackles controversial matters of vagrancy and the apocalypse.
