    Thanks to our friends at Dangerbird Records, one of the best labels out there specializing in quality alt rock, ARTISTdirect.com is pleased to offer "The Roller," a new song by Beady Eye, featuring ex-members of Oasis, save for Noel Gallagher, as a free download. The band's debut, Different Gear, Still Speeding, is out March 1st, but you can enjoy a free download of the sounds-like-Oasis-and-that-is-a-very-good-thing song "The Roller" a month in advance.

    Beady Eye features Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, and Andy Bell from Oasis. That band always had a modern-day-The-Beatles vibe, as does Beady Eye. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. On "The Roller," Gallagher really sounds like late-era John Lennon; it's almost eerie. But besides the inevitable Beatles comparisons, "The Roller" stands on its own as a pop ditty that's catchier than a cold from a baby in the winter. Good songwriting is good songwriting, and Beady Eye write solid songs. I want to hear more after indulging in this nugget from Different Gear, Still Speeding.

    Download the song here!

    Check it out now. We're confident you'll enjoy it. Just call me The Roller...uh uh uh uh.
