Jack PeÃ±ate’s sophomore album dropped recently and although I had heard lead single “Tonight’s Today” (and seen the crazo video) I was not that psyched for it. For me his debut LP Matinee was fun but forgettable. I guess it’s not a big surprise that on an album titled Everything Is New he flipped the script on us. Gone was the perky and snarky ska pop of songs like “Have I Been A Fool?” (below) and in it’s place was a real maturity, both lyrically and musically. Within the context of the album, “Tonight’s Today” suddenly made a lot more sense. Other great tracks like “Pull My Heat Away”, the title track, and second single “Be The One,” combine to form a great album that reveals more and more with each listen. “Let’s All Die” is the 8th of the albums 9 tracks and despite it’s title is possibly the most fun one. Apparently it’s not an actual recommendation but a recollection of a New Orleans funeral Jack saw as a youngster where all the celebration and partying at such an affair made an impact on him. For those of you new to Jacky P. here is the pretty great “Have I Been A Fool?” for proper chronological listening.
