Eytan Mirsky - Year Of The Mouse

Eytan Mirsky delivers his fifth album, which, like his previous releases is chock full of pop nuggets.

Eytan's albums are always so consistent, this, his fifth in a career that has spanned 16 years is no exception as Eytan shows he still has a deftness for writing a catchy tune to back his lyrical content, which at times reminds me of Elvis Costello.  Yes, the songs are that good!

Eytan is known mainly for his original contributions to film soundtracks, including the title songs for critically acclaimed films Happiness, sung by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe, and American Splendor, in which he himself appeared singing the theme. He also contributed three songs to the film The Tao of Steve, including the title song and “(I Just Wanna Be) Your Steve McQueen.” Other films to which Mirsky has contributed music are Palindromes, The Company and Desert Blue.
