ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Wales, Katell Keineg first built her reputation in New York on the buzzing cafe scene around St Mark's Place and Sin-e. Following her first release on Bob Mould's SOL Records, she emerged into one of the most inspiring and deeply moving performers around, with Natalie Merchant and Iggy Pop numbering among her fans and collaborators. Produced by Eric Drew Feldman of Captain Beefheart and PJ Harvey fame, "Jet", her second album for Elektra was named one of the best overlooked pop masterpieces of the decade by Esquire, while Keineg was recently tipped by The New York Times as "a songwriter due for her own cult".

Cy Figh

pre Beth Orton or Laura Viers
Yes, One of the first female singer songwriters to understand the new mellennium.

Dan

Sing Some Jazz?
KK has the pipes to sing Jazz. Jazz from the Highlands would be interesting.

Eric

Smile, everything is alright
Katell doesn't have the cult following that I would think she would have aquired by now but I have a feeling it's due to her soon...if not, the world is missing out.
JET is Katell's second and most complex release to date. Complex in the best way possible. The production and arrangements to her songs give the listener a thousand and one things to listen to beyond her mesmerizing voice. Her songs like the brilliant "Battle of the Trees" take just enough time to draw you into a world of its own and then attack you with everything in its power. If that doesn't make sense now, it will when you listen.
This cd took a few listens to really grow on me but once it did, it didn't leave. Listen and fall in love.

Katell Keineg - Jet
what a beautifully done piece of work. Texture through in and through out this album that's dynamic and emotional. If you like music, any music, you will want this work in your collection. If you see Katell, tell her I love her music!

Amazing
Every song is a gem- saw her live in 98- her voice is amazing. The dynamics in her writing are startling- Conquistador -complex- mesmerizing-powerful. One Hell of a Life- inspiring to say the least- Mother's Map- if you are not stirred by this song- you must be dead! Veni Vidi Vici-sparkling, flowing, light, beautiful... she reaches in and touches every emotion possible on this album. Brilliant singer/songwriter.

probably my favourite of all Katell's recordings
This album is amazing and so is Katell. "There you go" was the first one that struck me and then I discovered the rest, some people saw it as a "rewriting" of the myth of Orphee and Eurydice and I think it is just brilliant. "The Battle of the trees" is really uplifting. "One hell of a life" and "Smile" are masterpieces that remind us to "build our lives high on the present tense" and "on serendipity" and that we've got "everything we need"... :) "Ole conquistador" has a very particular structure which in my mind is brilliant. "Leonor" is about the painter Leonor Fini, well, every track is fantastic on this record and exudes pure beauty! You definitely should buy it!

it is one CD I couldn't do without buy. Its like a craving. It does not seem to have a diminishing marginal utility, for me.

KATELL KEINEG: JET
KATELL KEINEG: JET
The dewy green pastures of Ireland, with their salty ocean breezes, the aromatic cafes of Europe and the culturally rich milieu of New York's East Village have all been stops along Katell Keineg's journey to her second album, Jet. Besides representing her flight agenda, these places reflect the kind of beauty which swells in her music. Keineg's debut album, 0 Seasons, 0 Castles, got her mentioned in the same breath as influential artists such as Annie Lennox, Natalie Merchant and Sinead O'Connor. Jet, co-produced by Keineg, Eric Drew Feldman (Peru Ubu, Frank Black) and John Holbrook (who worked with Natalie Merchant on Tigerlilly), takes off with whispered vocals flying over an array of musical instruments, culminating in the orchestrated lushness of "The Battle Of The Trees," whose lyrics recommend, "Don't fly it alone." Dynamic instrumentation and bawdy lyrics fill "One Hell Of A Life," a song about what to do after death. "Leonor" uses excerpts from a newspaper obituary to portray the colorful tale of a woman's life. On the love song "There You Go," the mesmerizing Keineg sweetly pleads: "I don't have words that dazzle/Flipping forward from my tongue/But all in all/I love you darling/Is that enough?" She also inventively uses non-traditional instruments, such as children's toys and tourist trinkets, throughout the entire album, most notably on the captivating standout "Mother's Map."

One of the greatest of the great unknowns
My wife and I are both VERY much into music and have wide tastes. Since we first heard her, Katell has been on our (very short) joint "A" list. This is yet another great and greatly under-appreciated work. If you care about original, intense & meaningful rocking music (e.g., John Prine, Julian Cope, Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Lou Reed) you should buy everything by Katell that is available NOW.
