Flick Of The Finger: Play New Beady Eye Single Here!

They're back in the studio and making music again. Liam and the boys in Beady Eye are at work on their second album, the follow-up to 2011's Different Gear, Still Speeding.

"Flick of the Finger" got an airing on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic and Stereogum then linked to the track.

You can play it here below as well.

The verdict? Surprisingly strong, lean, mean, and sinister. There's a hint of Oasis/Beady Eye axeman Gem Archer's earlier Heavy Stereo singles but the horns hearken back to classic Stones stuff --- the kind of tunes Scorsese pilfers for gangster films.

I don't know the spoken word bit -- anyone ID that yet? -- but it adds to the purring menace in the cut.

An especially mature bit of nasty business from Liam Gallagher.

Despite the fact that he never seems to get the respect that he deserves, he keeps pushing this Brit-rock beast in new directions.
