Admission: I’m no soccer-jock, so the constant references to one of Noir’s tunes being in the World Cup commercial are meaningless to me. But what I do know is that “Eanie Meany” is one of the finest sunshine/pop songs of the Summer. Nothing dark here. Instant pop goodness that sounds as if it could have been a long lost Kinks b-side. Barsuk had apparently been after this album for awhile, and after hearing it I can see why. Cheers. [ release date: Aug 08 2006 ] Noir is presently touring — dates/details on his website.
