Oasis Feel "the grooves" on New Album
Noel Gallagher is a genius... well, close and he thinks so anyway—plus, he wrote "Slide Away" and all of our collective Broad favorites. That said, Noel Gallagher can do whatever the fook he wants to. So, if he wants to tell BBC 6 Music that they're going to "focus on the grooves" for their upcoming album, and lose the tracks that are too "songy," well I guess he can. And he did.
The new album, which is nowhere near completion (2 songs in the can and the rest demos), is set to be more groove-oriented and less "songy." Oh, yay. He's touching on his acid-tripping past as the inspiration for these new tracks:
"I've been re-visiting some of my more psychedelic trips of a younger man, because I remember them all you see...putting them to music. I've literally got nothing left to write about: I've wrote about being a youth, and I've wrote about being a rock star, and I've wrote about living life in the big city."
BUT, Oasis were totally back in their element with Don't Believe the Truth. It was like we instantly absolved them of their sins (ahem, Heathen Chemistry)... so, we'll see if their drugged-out heyday and Noel's memory is good enough for a classic.
Speaking of classics, check out this archived Oasis interview with Filter Magazine. My favorite part? The one-word album association. Journalist says the name of an Oasis album, they give a one-word response (Liam and Noel were interviewed seperately). Liam answers all the psych test questions with: "Classic." Of course.
