“If anyone ever tries to tell you that there’s nothing to love about Des Moines’ local music scene, you punch him or her right in his or her stupid, ugly face. Then you give him or her a copy of “American Jukebox” and try to be magnanimous when they tell you how wrong he or she was. MooseKnuckle has one of the most clearly developed, well-rounded sounds I’ve heard in the Capital City, and “American Jukebox” showcases the group’s abilities and versatility. The latter of which the band has in spades: the ’60s funkadelic keyboards on “Take Me Home;” the C&W roots of “Way Out West;” from the Ska undertones in “Sidetracked” to the hooks in “Mr Smiles” that are pure rock, MooseKnuckle is a quartet of gifted musicians who have managed to produce an album that showcases their respective strengths without muddling the overall sound.
