"I'm not really sure how to describe what kind of music these Brits make. It's sort of like...rock disco. Frontman, Jack Penate, shakes and rattles around with confidence that I think only a UK pop performer can pull off. His British cockiness reminds me ever-so-slightly of The Libertines, but the music is so much harder to position. What is it exactly? It seems like he could almost be the male Lily Allen, writing what everyone knows are actually pretty decent songs, but are just too enjoyable to be actually, truly good. In the end, whatever it is exactly that he does, he does it very well, but I don't think I like it." [NY Rockmarket]
Jack Penate concluded his most recent NYC visit with a show at Pianos on Thursday (6/4). Opening the show was Florida's Holiday Shores. More pictures below...

Thanks, 1:16. Yeah, I didn't know if I could pull it off, but once Obama got elected, I was inspired and all the effort and hard work from the last couple months MEH-ing on BV culminated tonight. Scuse me while I crack the bubbly.

So like... basically everything that came out in the last decade?

The record is great! Hope to see him live soon. His second record has more of a party/nightlife/club sound.
