I am not supposed to like music like Jack Penate makes. I am a 33yr old American guy who worships at the altar of bar bands and the singer/songwriter. But I really, really love this new Jack Penate record 'Everything Is New.' Really I do.
It does an amazing job of taking such bleak, sometimes woeful subject matter and pairing it with this really upbeat, almost euphoric music...the contrast won me over. All 9 songs on the record are really solid, not a second of filler. I am so glad I decided to open my ears and my mind...good things happened.
