Tower of Love
Imagine a 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 and making a record from the exploded fragments. That's what this debut sounds like. Over the past year, Noir has emerged as one of the most promising new talents on the UK scene. He released a string of brilliant EPs from his Manchester home since late 2004, which are compiled here along with a couple new tunes exclusive to this release. Look for him on tour this summer, including a slot on Lollapalooza.
