Beady Eye

Liam Gallagher, once of Oasis, has his own band nowadays. 'Beady Eye' have some material out there now for you to feast your ears on. With Noel being the more talented of the two brothers in my eyes I wasn't too fussed about Liam's effort of a solo career. Nonetheless I still had to listen to see how he'd gotten on.

First off I thought exactly what I thought I was gonna think. Nothing special.

However after time Iv let it to sink in and I can highly recommend Beady Eye to my followers. Stand out track so far for me has to be 'Four Letter Word'.

The Strokes - Angles

The Strokes – Angles

'Machu Picchu'
'Under Cover of Darkness'
'Two Kinds of Happiness'
'You’re So Right'
'Taken For A Fool'
'Call Me Back'
'Life Is Simple In The Moonlight'

The first blog post on here that isn’t a British artist and its come at a good time and Im glad it’s a band as good as The Strokes.
Just finished listening to the new album named Angles.  The first album from the Strokes as a whole for quite a few years now and they are back with a great album. I was so sure Id be disappointed with this comeback but I’m happy to say I’m not!
I’ve picked out 4 standout tracks for this album, although I don’t feel there is one that I could say won’t grow on me over time. A feeling which is the same for all Strokes Albums. 
I’m pretty damn certain ‘Call Me Back’ is going to be one of my favourite tracks of the year.
Standout tracks Metabolism, Machu Piccu, Your So Right, Call Me Back

Elbow/Richard Hawley - The Fix

Taken from the album, Seldom Seen kid, 'The Fix' features ex pulp musician Richard Hawley. A collaboration derived from the north of England sees the two artists meet in a wonderful song that I have only just discovered recently.

The album Seldom Seen Kid also features some songs I haved loved in the past such as 'Grounds For Divorce' and 'One Day Like This'.

Gonna have to go back and listen to this album in full.

Arctic Monkeys "Brick By Brick"

The band that burst onto the scene in 2005/2006 with their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, Thats What Im Not, are back in 2011 with an imminent 4th album release. To wet peoples whistles ahead of their yet unamed album the Arctic Monkeys have released a taster of things to come.

"Brick By Brick" is considerably more 'mainstream" than the Arctics previous album "Humbug" which was recorded out in the Desert with Queens of the Stone Age front man Josh Homme.

Splitting the Arctic Monkeys fanbase right down the middle, the track suggests that the whole new album could take similar shape but as far as im concerned this is just a taster and should be seen as a welcome relief seeing the drummer taking lead vocals for once.
