Formerly known as Grampall Jookabox (think "Grandpa Jukebox" as slurred by a three-year-old), Jookabox was formed as an alter ego for Midwest producer/songwriter David Adamson. The Indianapolis native developed a love for hip-hop at a young age, laying down rhymes over boom box beats on a four-track recorder given to him by his uncle. Those jams eventually morphed into an eclectic blend of blues-kissed psychedelic rock reminiscent of bands like Animal Collective, TV on the Radio, and Odelay-era Beck, culminating in a heady, trippy debut for the Joyful Noise label called Scientific Cricket in 2007, followed by Ropechain in 2008, and Dead Zone Boys in 2009, both on the Asthmatic Kitty label. For 2011's Eyes of the Fly, Adamson switched to the Jookabox moniker. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
