New Jim Noir – “Don’t You Worry”

| February 28, 2008 - 11:32 am

Taking a break from reminding us holidays are times of magic, Manchester electro-acoustic singer-songwriter Jim Noir’s back with his self-titled sophomore full-length (see, he’s been releasing a bunch of EPs since Tower Of Love). One of the best tracks, “Don’t You Worry,” is a swirling analog hymn with an OTC-on-Beatles vibe and simple message: Don’t worry, be happy. Well, kind of: “Don’t worry, I’ll be fine.” The “If you don’t want to be with me / What do you expect me to be?” bridge isn’t quite as cheery as the Target cut.

Psychedelic. The song, combined with the wavy photo, make us want to watch Ghostbusters stoned.

Jim Noir is out 4/8 on Barsuk.
