Some great free Irish music from Star of Heaven has just been made available from Independent Records. Both their records – ‘Sacred Heart Hotel’ and ‘Speak Slowly’ – are now free to download and definitely worth taking a listen too.
The Stars were signed to Rough Trade in what seems like yonks ago. John Peel was a big big fan and anyone who digs alt-country and the likes of Alex Chilton or Wilco is going to really enjoy these, particularly ‘Speak Slowly’
Independent Records head honcho Dave O’Grady has rightfully taken note that it’s near impossible to flog these albums on a physical format these days given the changing face of the industry and it’s a great move for band and punter to just get the music out there. Seriously worth a listen. Get downloading, you’ve no excuses!
