THE SOUND OF THE LAST FEW WEEKS

It’s been a while since the last update, so I just thought i’d keep you up to date with what i’ve been listening to recently.

As an Oasis geek, I am eagerly anticipating the release of Noel Gallagher’s solo album on October 17th.

I am absolutely loving the latest single, ‘If I Had A Gun’

You may recognise ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster The People from a TV advert and the bass riff being link music in various TV shows. It’s a song i’m absolutely loving right now.

Another song from an advert i’m loving at the moment is James Cleaver’s cover of ‘Buck Rogers’ by Feeder.

Something that annoys is the attitude some people in Northern Ireland have that it’s my patriot duty to love Snow Patrol.

To be fair, they have done some good songs. Their latest single ‘Called Out Of The Dark’ is gloriously wonderful.

Another band making a comeback in the singles charts is Red Hot Chilli Peppers with ‘The Adventures Of Raindance Maggie’

I am absolutely loving this song, especially the pumping bassline and drumbeat. It’s classic Chilli Peppers.

Other honourable mentions go to ‘Make You Mine’ by Talay Riley and ‘My Body’ by Young The Giant.
