40 Days

Cara Luft, Nicky Mehta, and Ruth Moody were each enjoying substantive individual careers on the Canadian folk music scene when they joined forces for an impromptu show at a friend’s guitar shop. One show led to another and a band was born. Now the estimable Red House label brings the Jennys Stateside with their first full-length release, 40 Days. Consisting of two traditional Celtic tunes, two covers (Neil Young’s “Old Man” and John Hiatt’s “Take It Down”), and a democratic showcase of their own compositions, the album practically bursts at the seams with an infectious, collaborative energy. Unpredictable vocal arrangements feature short solo turns that subtly blossom into choir-robe-perfect harmony, each lady staking claim to a unique vocal range and handing off ownership of the melody. The writing is appealingly diverse in style, yet unified by a soulful, lyrical quality, vigorous rhythm guitars, and those exquisite harmonies. Impeccably produced by David Travers-Smith, this is one of the most exciting new folk bands and albums of 2004.

This is a gorgeous album with some very sweet tracks. I had the pleasure of seeing (and hearing) the Jennys recently and their immense talent shines through on the this recording as it did in the concert. Their talent for songwriting and putting their own spin on covers, equals their amazing ability to perform. The harmonies are intoxicating.
