Jukebox Monkey are a four-piece southern stoner rock band formed in 2010 from Kent, England. They have returned with a long waited EP “Vs Time”. I am wondering if it is just me who has had a wrong idea about the band name. I was hugely surprised when I first listened to the music by Jukebox Monkey. It turned out to be heavy, solid hard rock! It actually made me smile because I was so happy finding their sound.

This EP is smartly produced, there is no doubt about it. It would have been even more enjoyable if they made this EP into a full album.
Defined by their monolithic groove-stomping stoner rock, their sound steals shamelessly from Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC alongside modern head-butts to Down, Clutch and Kyuss. Also the mysteriousness of the sound they give is something similar to what I felt when I heard Queens Of The Stone Age.

If I borrow their own words, “Vs. Time” is 5 fat slabs of heavy pounding sonic assault that will take you on a bass-bruising progressive journey which you’ll not want to end.
I am sure you will enjoy this EP as much as I do.

The EP “Vs. Time” is now available for purchasing on BandCamp. https://jukeboxmonkey.bandcamp.com/album/vs-time-ep
