Need a stocking stuffer for the music lover in your life this Christmas? Look no further than the 2009 release of Jack Penate's second album Everything Is New. This London born singer continues to set the music scene ablaze with his fully functioning pop dance tracks and his tightly delivered live performances. At a recent Doug Fir Lounge show, Penate didn't skip a beat during his entire set by hooking together the beginning and end to each song with genius ease. Quaintly making use of the world music sound, Penate creates near dance anthems with the likability of the best British pop around.
The entire album is featured below and the nine tracks will only be hampered by the small delay between songs. Otherwise you will probably not stop moving and may quickly find yourself learning the words to the choruses even as you hear each song for the first time.
The next Living With Music article will be our end of the year feature. Last year we were able to supply you with a link to a completely free album by fantastic traditional alt rock band Empires. This year, we will summarize the year of 100 live performances and try to dig up some free music again too!
