Foo Fighters – Something from nothing
Album – Sonic Highways
‘Something from nothing’ is the first track on the Foo’s 8th studio album. The album consists of 8 songs, all recorded in different cities; Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and New York. In typical Foo Fighters fashion, the track is pure rock and roll, which is unsurprising considering the track was recorded with Steve Albini, who often worked with Dave Grohl during his time in Nirvana. The single sounds a lot like their older stuff, which considering their track record is definitely not a bad thing. If you want a song that will break your speakers, and make you want to listen all over again, this song is for you.

Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds – In the heat of the moment
Album – Chasing yesterday (Out 2nd Match 2015)
“In the heat of the moment” is the first track released from Noel’s second album “Chasing yesterday.” The track oozes an Oasis vibe, without sounding outdated, something that is often ever so present in Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye songs. The single was inspired by a documentary featuring an astronaut who described going to space as “touching the face of god,” which is the opening line of the song. Gallagher commented on this, saying “If that’s not an opening line for a song I don’t know what is,” modest as ever. The main thing you can tell from this song is that Noels voice has matured, meaning stronger vocals and his song writing is as impressive as ever. The track suggests we could expect a lot from the upcoming album, and it’s definitely one to look out for early next year.

Johnny Marr – Easy Money
Album – Playland
‘Easy Money’ is the first track released from former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr’s second solo album, ‘Playland.’ The track throws out good mood vibes, with an excellent melody and super catchy riff. Talking about the message behind the song, Marr explained how everyones want to make money was his inspiration behind the lyrics. He said he liked “the idea of sneaking a serious concern into the mainstream, disguised as a big pop tune.” Well, disguise it he certainly did, as there are no serious feelings to this song, just a super catchy tune to have you dancing all through the week and one that should certainly make it onto your playlist.
The song was followed up by a second release; ‘Dynamo’ which is equally as good. If you like ‘Easy money’ it’s definitely worth checking out.
