Product Description

2007 debut album from the UK songstress Kate Nash. Pop music with indie sensibilities and an experimental edge permeate much of this album, and it is topped off with Nash's distinctive estuary vocal stylings. Since the album's release, Nash has been the talk of the town in the UK, where she regularly appears in most of the music magazines from NME to Q. She has quickly risen the ranks from 'darling of the critics' to commercially-successful artist, and deservedly so. Features 12 tracks including the single 'Foundations'. Universal.

Amazon.com

Thanks to a gaggle of loyal MySpace friends, Kate Nash skyrocketed to the top of the British charts just a year after penning her first song, so you might expect her first album to sound a bit cobbled together. In reality, it is a wildly exuberant, refreshingly original set of songs that suffers from only a few lyrical clunkers and less-than-realized melodies. For the most part, it follows mentor Lily Allen's genre-busting lead, wrapping charming tunes like "We Get On" and "Pumpkin Soup" around lopsided beats, simple piano melodies, and blunt kiss-offs that Nash delivers through a laughably thick cockney accent. "Foundations" brings everything together beautifully, spinning a romantic argument into a surprisingly poignant and memorable single that confirms her sudden success as no fluke. --Aidin Vaziri

By Andrew Ellington VINE VOICE on October 8, 2007
I think the best way to really explain the feeling you get when listening to Kate Nash is this way...it feels like reading the diary of a teenage girl, poetic yet familiar, mature yet in a very childish way filled to the brim with her ideas of heartbreak, true love and loneliness. With that said I must say that `Made of Bricks' is probably the best album I've heard this entire year. From start to finish it's engrossing and completely entertaining. Kate Nash has a way with words; she makes them sound so inviting and so expressive. That's what I love about this album. Like I mentioned, her terminology is at times childish but it's poetic at the same time, very expressive and mature.

The album opens with `Play' which is less a song and more an introduction of interlude of sorts. That's all that really needs to be said about that. She repeats "I like to play" over and over for a little over a minute. The album really begins though with the single `Foundations', a song about trying to salvage a relationship that is falling apart at the seams. The first verse is so relatable, I think everyone has witnessed this almost exact experience or at least known someone who has. Using phrases like "you said I must eat so many lemons because I am so bitter" is a perfect example of the simplistic and or childish terminology I mentioned earlier. Her next single `Mouthwash' is even more enjoyable. I just love the feeling behind her music here. `D***head' is actually brilliant in its simplicity. It sounds just like the something you'd hear come out of a venting schoolgirl's mouth. It's the most vulgar song here and in the end it may be one of the most powerful. The interlude `S*** Song' kind of carries this same weight, expressive in its vulgarity.

I listen to Lily Allen and it was suggested that I try and have a go at Kate Nash.
Immediately I was blown away. Her voice is unbelieveable and she is only 20 years old. The sound that she produces is to die for. The instruments that are incorporated into the songs are genius. It sounds classy with the piano and violin yet very hip hop-esque with upbeat drums.
The key songs to listen to are Mariella, Pumpkin Soup, Nicest Thing, and Merry Happy.
I am being such a sap but I cried when I heard Nicest Thing. You can feel her pain through it. It's heartbreaking.
If you're going to buy one CD then it should definitely be Made of Bricks. I have had it on repeat for the past week and I am still not sick of it. The record in its entirety is perfect but some songs might stand out more (depending on how you are feeling that day).
I literally get up and dance when I hear Mariella and Pumpkin Soup.
Very Lily Allen but Kate Nash definitely has her own sound.

She is the talk of the town in London now. However she has quite some talent. The first single Caroline (not included) was great and there was a good remix available on her website however it is with the next single Foundations that she came to be a revelation. The rest is just as good, a mixture of acoustic and minimalist electro singing in a thick london accent. Clearly one of the better debuts for a while. Much better than other solo female performers coming out of Britain at the moment.

This is a great album! It's fun and upbeat, but the songs are well written and have a dark edge. I'm surprised how smart the lyrics are at times; some of the songs tell a whole story, and do it well. Reading the list of song titles, you might expect a silly young pop star with more attitude than talent, but that's not the case at all.

I give "Made of Bricks" four stars, because there are a few clear favorites (We Get On, Mariella, Skeleton Song, Foundations). But I don't dislike any of the songs, and I listen to it from beginning to end almost every time.

By the way, ignore comparisons to Lily Allen. Kate's music doesn't really have much hip-hop/R&B influence, and if it did I wouldn't like it. There are occasional Regina Spektor-like moments, but mostly Kate is a unique artist who doesn't sound like other musicians I've heard.

For those of us who can't get enough of Lily Allen and wish there was a new album waiting 'round the bend, surprise! Along comes Kate Nash with a very similar voice and thematic roundup: chump boyfriends, getting drunk, having fun, shooting off one's mouth in public, getting dissed, etc. etc. The music is considerably more divergent than Ms. Allen's repetoire which is basically ska-oriented throughout. Cheeky fun from the UK.

The lyrics are quirky and weird, the music is bouncy and fun. It's very different and I mean that in an entirely enjoyable way. I had heard the Foundations song on Pandora and I thought it was so funny, bouncy and different and on the strength of that purchased the CD. I was not disappointed. It of course is the best song on the album, but the rest of the CD has that same strong woman personality I enjoy lyrics from with an upbeat bouncy beat even when she's singing "telling" her boyfriend not to be a di*kh*ad.

It's been a while since I liked a "Pop" artist enough to purchase their CD. But Kate Nash is kind of like a breath of fresh air for me. Each song has it's own catchy style and I catch myself singing "Foundations" about 5 times a day.
