From a Manchester bedroom to your stereo via outer space, we're overjoyed to introduce the new album from Jim Noir. He's named it after himself, but don't be fooled into thinking he's run out of ideas Jim's eponymous second album is one of the most expansive pop records you'll hear this year. His music has always been a melee of different styles and influences, and this album sees him delving more into his electronic side and going further with melody and vocals than he's ever gone before there's even some lead falsetto.
Imagine a Wurlitzer jukebox stacked with the hits of ELO, Super Furry Animals, Pepper-era Beatles, The Beta Band, The Beach Boys, early Pink Floyd and Supertramp. Now imagine blowing that jukebox up with a cartoon-style dynamite stick and making a record from the exploded fragments of vinyl and luminescent tubing. That's a bit like what Jim Noir's debut album, Tower Of Love sounds like. *** Barsuk version has two extra tracks not on the UK version. ***
An iTunes digital release, this EP contains 3 versions of the song eanie meany (including a remix by Fatboy Slim), a reworked version of tell me what to do (from Tower Of Love), plus a non-album track.
