Song of the Week: Jack Peñate

Jack Peñate (pronounced more like piñata and less like emanate) delivers the first big surprise of 2009 with his single “Tonight’s Today,” to be featured on my next podcast and surely a contender for song of the year. I enjoyed most of Peñate’s mostly overlooked debut record, Matinée, and its upbeat, pub-friendly pop tunes, but this song is a marked improvement. And a change of direction, with top-notch beats and production (possibly from Norman Cook Paul Epworth). As they say in Britain, a big choon indeed. (Thanks to
