There’s been many more fantastic additions to the Free Irish Music Download list compiled by myself and Goldenplec. Everything on the list is free and legal, but since there’s so much on it, it’s hard to know where to start. Here’s some highly recommended recent additions.
The Hundred Flower Campaign – The Hundred Flower Campaign
Five-track EP from the charming Wexford/Dublin alt-rock band. This EP came out last year, and is a splendid outing from the four-piece band, whose funk-rock tunes have been winning fans all over Leinster. They’re even better live, but this is a nice free sampler from the band with Spurs’ initials.
Jape – Cosmosphere
This is the debut release from Richie Egan, initially limited to 500 copies. It’s an eight track record, that he’s made freely available to download on SoundCloud. It’s not as polished as his later stuff, but there’s plenty to admire. He’s constantly recording new songs and demos which he puts up on his SoundCloud page, which are worth checking out too.
O Emperor – ‘One Horse Guy’
Non-album track from the upcoming Waterford/Cork band. Although it’s not on their debut full-length, Hither Tither (due October 1st). It’s an excellent reminder as to why the band were so hyped following the release of single ‘Po’ and the Reverie EP.
Roy Shiels – The Teenage Storm
Debut EP from Dubliner Roy Shiels, which I was introduced to via the wonderful SwearyLady at Culch.ie. It’s a sparkling collection of indie rock songs, and serves a fantastic introduction to the hard-working Shiels.
