Product Description

CD Description

JINDER returns with his sixth album, and finest to date, 'Nine Cents From Benelux'. Following the critically lauded album 'Postcards From Valonia', made with his band, BBC Radio Two favourites The Mercurymen, 'Nine Cents...' sees Jinder returning to the solo work that, in the last nine years, has seen him grow from cult singer/songwriter to internationally acclaimed artist. Featuring highlights such as first single 'Train In Your Voice', the chilling 'Frozen Ocean' and a stunning reinterpretation of Don McLean's classic 'Vincent', this album is one of this year's unequivocal must-have releases.

Review

A true ambassador, delivering his unique style of Americana...A brilliant singer/songwriter. --Live@ Magazine

Superb...country-come-Americana that s as good as it gets. One of the best. --Maverick Magazine

You can practically drink in the atmosphere, and on Townes Blues you feel as if you re in the same room in the middle of the night when No Deeper Blue is taking one last spin on the record player and the wine bottle is emptying...Jinder s acoustic guitar sound and sublime voice just need to be heard. Towering and heartrending. --Zeitgeist Online

I've been following Jinder's career since I was introduced to his stellar 2005 album Willow Park by a friend of mine, a few years back.

2008 appeared to be Jinder's breakthrough year, signing to Sony BMG with his band The Mercurymen and making the superb album Postcards From Valonia. However, with little news on The Mercurymen's 2009 movements and this, Jinder's first solo album since 2006's I'm Alive, emerging on his own label, Din Of Ecstasy, it would appear that the major label union was perhaps not as fruitful as hoped.

No matter. Nine Cents From Benelux is a vibrant and vital album, brimming with dynamic range and Jinder's trademark depth of artistry.

Very different in approach to Postcards From Valonia's CSN-influenced, polished, radio-friendly folk/rock, Nine Cents...is an album of frayed emotional reflection. Stating its case boldly as a modern nexus point between English folk and Americana, the album's highlights often come from the most unexpected places...witness the frayed darkness of the sub-two-minute 'Frozen Ocean' and the tender re-interpretation of Don McLean's standard 'Vincent', juxtaposed with the dusty storytelling of 'Vacancy Here' and the flat-out rage of the traditional 'In My Time Of Dying'.

It's easy to argue the case that a 28yr old guy from Warwickshire might not have the credentials to occupy a place in the pantheon of country/folk, but any doubts that a listener could conceivably harbour are comprehensively blown away by the sheer strength of the songwriting on show throughout Nine Cents From Benelux.

Don't miss out on what could be the best release yet from one of Britain's finest exponents of acoustic music.

This is an excellent record, one of the best to emerge from the UK singer/songwriter scene since Foy Vance's Hope in 2007.

Coming hot on the heels of 2008's Mercury Men album Postcards From Valonia , 'Nine Cents From Benelux' is an easy-rolling, natural and relaxed sounding solo record that sits somewhere between John Martyn's Bless The Weather and Guy Clark's Old No.1/Texas Cookin', occupying a gap between UK folk and Americana that has been left largely vacant in recent years, probably since Jinder's last solo release in 2006.

According to his website, this album has arrived on Jinder's own label and with the minimum of hyperbole and fuss, and seems destined to be a slow burning success.

If you're unconvinced by this review, let the music's persuasive charms do the work-listen to the nostalgic narrative of Train In Your Voice or the urgent Waiting Line, and you'll understand what I'm talking about.

I am from Canada & ran into Jinder thru a music forum we both belong to.

I became interested in hearing Jinder's own music, so I got "Willow Park" and "I'm Alive." "I'm Alive" is brilliant, such a beautiful voice and guitar and evocative lyrics.

"9 Cents From Benelux" is a step forward again. It begins with a soulful beauty called "Train In Your Voice" and closes with another pretty number, "Silver Wings of Morning." The songs inbetween are poignant, intelligent vocals with lovely instrumentation as on "Townes' Blues" and "Frozen Ocean." "Hazel County" is my favorite track I think. Jinder sings "I'm goin' home" and to me this album has a theme of lonesomeness, regret, spilled wine, life questions, trying to find a way back home ... "trying to keep a foothold in this ever-changing scene, let the silver wings of morning carry me."

Exquisite album, well done, Jinder!

There seems to be some very knowledgeable Jinder fans on here...but i'm a little surprised that none of them mentioned, that most of these songs are re-releases of songs from his two previous albums.
Tracks ~ 1 ,4 ,6 ,7 ,8 , are on 'I'm Alive'. Great album.
Tracks ~ 2 ,5, are on 'Willow Park'. Even better album.
I just mention this by way of helping potential buyers make an informed choice.
I like those two albums so much ,i am going to buy this , just for the 3 songs i don't have.(and to be honest ,i never liked Don McLeans 'Vincent').
For sure, buy some Jinder... but maybe check out the other albums too/first ?.
