Hit of the week: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds ‘Black Star Dancing’

Noel Gallagher, it seems, was not content to let his brother Liam Gallagher get all the solo record glory and has announced his newest EP. He’s gone as far as to share the EP’s title track to whet your appetite. But it’s nothing like you’d expect.

The track is a space-tinged groove which has more in common with EDM than Britpop and will see Noel move into a new sphere. He opened up about some of his influences for the record “It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep and ZZ Top!,” said the former Oasis leading man.

Best Covers: Panic! At The Disco ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

After covering the Queen classic in concert for quite some time, Brendon Urie and his boys finally got the chance to record their version of “Bohemian Rhapsody” as part of the Suicide Squad​ soundtrack. The song might not have quite the same affect as if you were to hear it in person, but the recorded rendition still brings on the chills.

Le Classique: Queen “Bohemian Rapsody”

En Mariscal Mauro ens presenta el clàssic d’aquesta setmana aprofitant el concert que uns descafeinats Queen donen avui a Barcelona. El nostre classique és “Bohemian Rapsody”.

Amb una carrera de més de 40 anys, la banda britànica Queen ha acumulat una llista impressionant d’èxits, vendes i premis. Bona part del mèrit la va tenir la figura de Freddie Mercury, la seva llegendària veu principal i coautor principal de la banda, que completaven en la seva formació de més èxit Brian May, Roger Taylor i John Deacon (ja retirat). Des de la mort de Mercury el 1991, la banda mai s’ha separat oficialment, i els seus components han acumulat fites de dubtosa qualitat i èxit, tant junts, separats, en pau o barallats. L’última fita ha estat incorporar a les seves files com a vocalista principal a Adam Lambert, conegut mundialment per participar en la vuitena temporada del talent show americà ‘American Idol’, on va quedar segon. Avui al Palau Sant Jordi.
