Jim Noir 1, Chickens 0

I was quite shocked to hear Jim Noir's "Eanie Meaney" being used for the Addidas World Cup ads but I hope he's making plenty of money from it. Sadly the album from which the song comes from, "Tower Of Love" has not been released in the US yet, but if you like Brian Wilson influenced, psychedelic folk this collection of previously limited EPs is something to consider even as an import. In much the same way as the Boy Least Likely To album still feels like an album because the songs are so good the same can be said here. To download today here is that song which has brightened up several dull group games at half time, the remix of "My Patch" by Hot Chip and so you can compare and contrast the very cool video for "My Patch".

Tower of love is easily the most listened to record inthe last 8 months in our house. Top stuff.
