Biography

When he was last here Jack Peñate was, by his own admission, a kid. A south London bedroom-boy-with-acoustic-guitar. He ducked, he dived, he played many shows in the UK and a rare few in the US, rockin’ the scenesters. And rockin’ the charts: his debut album, 2007’s Matinée, went gold in the UK; the single, Torn On The Platform, entered the UK charts at Number 7 ... Read more in Amazon's Jack Penate Store

5.0 out of 5 stars This year's biggest surprise! 20 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
I don't review on Amazon very often but this album is something worth writing about. My previous opinion of Penate, I confess, was ambivolent at best.

The aptly titled 'Everything Is New' brings something completely different to the table. It's hard to believe it comes from the imagination of the same person who bored me to death two years ago with yawning mockney acoustic pop blah.

The album opens with the ethereal, pounding "Pull My Heart Away", which perfectly sets the tone for the delights to come. This, along with many of the following tracks is a very heart on sleeve account of making a fresh start and taking chances.

The religious allusions on 'Be The One' are also a recurring theme. Again, there is a throbbing beat and fantastic instrumentation that just has you hooked from the outset. Even the catchy break towards the end of the track gives it stand-out appeal.

Tonight's Today, which has a heady, almost tribal undercurrent, is inspired by Penate's all night partying. I read one interview where he said he'd been out for so long he saw a clock with 4 on the dial and had no idea whether it was 4am or 4pm.

The Balearic beats and catchy hooks continue with the title track, Everything Is New. The melting hawaiian guitar, hand claps and harmonies meld together perfectly. "Dance Away Defeat..." Penate joyously wails, and you can't help but move along with the rhythm. It conjours images of sweaty South American beach parties under the setting sun.

So Near combines happy clappy with techno beats and twinkly guitars and gets better with every listen.

The pace slows for Every Glance, (with Adele backing). Again, Penate's sighing vocals are given plenty of sultry echo and depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good album 24 July 2009
By M. Saxby VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I'd never heard of Jack Penate, but accidently caught some of his set in the John Peel tent at Glastonbury (on the Beeb! :) )and he seemed pretty good.

I bought his first CD and it's a pretty good album, but this one is something else altogether.

The tracks are distinctive and fresh (these are the tracks I remember from the Glasto set), with many influences but managing to sound different rather than another 'me too' indie artist.

Refreshing too, in that there are only 9 tracks, but all deserve inclusion, no pad the CD out filler dross here. I used to feel a CD with less than 14 tracks was poor value, but nowadays I'd rather have 9 good tracks than 7 good, 4 so-so and 3 duffers.

One of the best CDs I've bought in a while (actually set of MP3s as it was, unusually, cheaper to buy the MP3s than a second hand copy of the CD) - Amazon's MP3 Downloader worked very well for me too.

4.0 out of 5 stars surprising reinvention 19 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to a preview copy of this album. I can't say I was ever a fan of Penate's last album. It was a bit rubbish, frankly, The kind of mass-market landfill that's here today, gone tomorrow. Between 2007 and 2009, Penate has undergone something of a radical reinvention. Everything IS New, indeed.

This record is nine songs of wide-eyed pure musical joy mixing up a huge array of sounds you don't hear on your average pop LP: African rhythms, Ibiza beats, fuzzy guitars, samples, choirs ... It has clearly been inspired by Vampire Weekend - and it's none the worse for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under rated 31 Jan 2010
By avl06 VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This was one of the best albums of 09, and its sad it was all but overlooked in the end of year lists. This is funky, soulful, and much of it sounds like it was recorded in the house that Lionel Richie was dancing on the ceiling of. Great production by Epworth and great tracks, Pull My Heart Away a particular fave. Hope for more of this quality, or of course better, very soon from Penate.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's Alright, Jack 16 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Heard some of JP's previous work in passing, wasn't really impressed. This is a massive re-invention - don't know if he's made a pact with the devil or something, but this album is ace. I would've given it 4.5 stars if I could, couldn't quite give it 5.

There isn't a bad track, and most of them are great (there's only 9 mind). The first track reminded me of The Cure.

That is all

4.0 out of 5 stars Album- Great, Delivery- Excellent! 10 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
After really liking Jack's first album Matinee, I was thrilled to see he had a new one coming out. Then I saw him at Radio 1's Big Weekend and he played a few of his new tracks which didn't sound as great as his old ones such as Torn On the Platform, Second, Minute or Hour etc. I pre-ordered the album a week before it's release conscious of the fact it only had 9 tracks which is probably the least I have seen on an album in a while. It arrived 3 Days before it was even released which amazed me and overall it's pretty good. It's a lot different from his first album which is more acoustic and rock- this has a range of styles of music. There are some great songs even though there are only 9 on the album. Tonight's Today was a great choice to release as first single as it is catchy and lyrically clever. Pull My Heart Away, Be The One and So Near stand out as great tracks. Let's All Die- despite having strange lyrics has great music and gets you hooked and Body Down is a good way to finish. I've only given in 4 stars as:
1. It isn't my album of the year as Franz Ferdinand- Tonight still get's my vote and with JET, The Cribs and Idlewild coming with new albums it could still fall.
2. It only has 9 tracks which isn't many. If it had more then it maybe would get 5. Seeing as it has been 2 years since his first album I was expecting something brilliant as Kings Of Leon had a 1 year gap from their previous album and then released a worldwide blockbuster of an album.
It is different from his first album so it may be a surprise but it is still great music just different from the fast paced guitar and drumming we heard from Matinee.
