Beady Eye Be on 2LP + Download

Be is the sophomore effort from Beady Eye consisting of ex-Oasis members Liam Gallagher (vocals), Gem Archer (guitar) and Andy Bell (guitar) and rounded out by Jay Mehler (bass) and Chris Sharrock (drums). Serving as the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2011 debut Different Gear Still Speeding, Be was recorded in London with producer Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and finds the band experimenting with their epic, studiedly retro sound, augmenting it with samples and tape loops, and also sees Gallagher's vocals completely untreated, in response to critics of his singing voice. 

The result is an ambitious and exhilarating 14-song set which showcases a stunning depth of songwriting. The record is a bold statement of intent from a band who sound as hungry as ever to achieve greatness. Includes the lead single "Second Bite of the Apple." The artwork for Be was shot by Harri Peccinotti, famous for the Pirelli calendars in the '70s. 

"Working with Sitek just opened something up in us. He’s without a doubt the best producer I’ve ever worked with, a real outlaw - he doesn’t give a fuck, no rules. We had a new found focus when we were writing it - we really got our heads down and got our shit together - clear heads, none of that crap from the 90s. It feels like a really special record for us.” said Liam. 

“It’s a trippy record! The strength of the tracks is so high that we got to really play around! It’s rock-band instrumentation, but used in a different way. Liam’s vocals are incredible, all you have to do is turn on a microphone and you’re like, ‘that sounds like a record!’ You don’t have to do anything to them,” proclaimed Dave Sitek.

"Sitek’s presence on ‘BE’ goes beyond mere stunt casting, and when the band fully submit to his whims the results are extraordinary. ‘Flick Of The Finger’, with its dreadnought horns and propulsive swagger, is the best thing they’ve ever recorded, and the glam-soul strut of ‘Second Bite Of The Apple’ isn’t far behind. Sitek is all over both, cranking the levers and steering them into the areas of the map marked Here Be No Beatles." - Barry Nicholson, NME
