iTunes Editors' Notes

For album number two, Brit singer-songwriter Jack Penate teamed up with Bloc Party producer Paul Epworth in his west London home studio and began a sonic transformation that attempts “lo-fi soul,” and whatever paradoxes and contradictions that might conjure up. Penate’s a skilled singer, so he can slink past the synth patches and silky rhythmic tumbles with grace and ease. With nine tracks coming in at three to four minutes, Penate’s an economical guest who understands how to ignite the ghosts of Brit-pop and Philly Soul without owing much to either in the transaction. “Pull My Heart Away” sets the tone, the vocals hiding behind reverb and mechanical beats. “Be the One” establishes greater stage presence with Penate taking charge and sending the disco beats to the backstage while the loopy back-up vocals mock and tease. By “Tonight’s Today,” Penate’s even goofing on his own vocals, twisting into mock falsetto before joining the back-up choir for a culture-jam of world beat and budget-lined techno.

Customer Reviews

fantastic update

Exactly what I wanted from all the hype over the last few months this will define the summer of 2009 with some amazing festival tunes, all the songs seem to deliver a relaxing tone but also a strong beat to compliment. The research that's gone into this album is clear, with strong influences from various cultures this is obviously a fresh, strong and important album for the genre. A tepid fan before, a big fan now.

Get it!

This album has a lovely summer vibe. The lyrics are somewhat captivating, drawing in loads of different influences and leaving you feeling refreshed and ready to go! Embrace Jack's quirkiness by either choosing to interpret the lyrics or simply enjoy their wonderful sound!

A Stunning Album

I'm not normally a person that falls in love with a whole album, but this is just captivating. The album stands up as just that...a record that should be listened to in its entirety. Buy it and listen all the way through - you will not be disappointed.

Biography

Born: 09 September 1984 in Blackheath, London, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

In many ways, Jack Peñate is Lily Allen minus the sarcasm and the party frocks. The South Londoner's music is slick, radio-ready pop, but its heart is rooted in the Two-Tone ska revival and the more soulful end of '80s pop, along the lines of the Style Council and the Housemartins. Add in Peñate's striking vocal resemblance to the young Billy Bragg and he's like the post-millennial equivalent to the U.K. student discos of two decades previously. Jack Fabian Peñate was born in Blackheath, a fairly...
