New Jim Noir :: “Don’t You Worry”

Jumping a decade ahead from the sunny early ’60s feel of his excellent Tower of Love album (2006), the first listen from the upcoming Jim Noir 2008 self-titled release has a bit more psychedelica and golden shimmer to it. You can almost picture the shiny happy people twirling and spinning on the Berkeley streets to this one, while Noir muses about a relationship gone to crap:

If you don’t want to be with me
what do you expect me to be?
Don’t you worry, I’ll be fine

Don’t You Worry – Jim Noir

Jim Noir is out April 8 on Barsuk, features a spaceman on the cover, and the opening track is called “Welcome Commander Jameson.”
If he’s talkin to the whiskey, while in outer space, well then I like Jim even more.

  • It’s the best song on the album (and it’s not even on the album). This was put on so many mixes last year that I made for people and, without fail, it was the song that was always mentioned after.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
