CRITIC REVIEWS

Loud and Quiet
His is a world of strange and wonderful rhythms and few debuts manage such idiosyncrasy without losing focus.
80
DIY
With layer upon layer of vocal, groove, and percussion, ‘Jaakko Eino Kalevi’ is a reminder that pop can be both for your head and your feet.
70
NME
His sound has barely moved on from the exploratory disco-funk he made in his Helsinki bedroom. This is no bad thing: at its best ‘Jaako Eino Kalevi’ conjures the slinkier moments of Ariel Pink’s 2010 breakthrough ‘Before Today’.

Exclaim!
It's a cool record that coasts on chill grooves rather than bombastic drops.
60
The Skinny

Sure there are fillers and Kalevi gleefully embraces style over substance, but Jaakko evinces a peculiar, alluring personality.

Incredible - dreamy, psychedelic, grand and absurd. So much fun.
