I have seen the future of indie rock - His name is....Jack Penate,
This review is from: Matinee (Audio CD)This is quite possibly the best album I have heard in quite a few months. Reminiscent of The Hoosiers album, Jack Penate (pronounced `Pen at ay' and not `pen eight' as some of my esteemed friends seem to think, has produced an album of informative, insightful and memorable songs.
Some of the album sounds all too familiar with influences ranging from all of the latest indie rockers (The Kooks, The Feeling, The Zutons etc.), but the song writing talent cannot be taken away from this wholly creative, inspired young man. "We Will Be Here", "Second Minute or Hour" and "Torn on the Platform" are outstanding tracks.
This is one you will play and play again and the more you do, the more you will excel yourself with words worthy of any intellectual convincing yourself how much you love it.
The rockin' beats of "Made of Codes" completes a substantive list to make this a distinctive sound, just about every track has a uniqueness (as in the haunting "My Yvonne") that's well thought out and brought together. This isn't a rushed album; it's a well planned artistic experience that any deserving indie fan should have.
I hope Jack grows and grows, as he truly deserves to. Years from now, you will still be playing Jack Penate's Matinee.

Agree with your comments about the album, it's wicked. But you and your esteemed friends are all wrong about the pronounciation of the name mate. It's actually spelt Peņate, with the Spanish letter ņ in the middle which is an 'ny' sound, so it should be pronounced Pen-yat-ay. Heheheh, sorry bout that but had to point it out :P
