"Sparks n Mind", in aid of Aware, out now

Postby the bellies » Thu Jun 18, 2009 12:12 pm

The Final Year students in the Sound Training Centre Dublin have put together a charity album with all the proceeds going to “Aware”, an organistion that provides support and awareness programs for people suffering with depression. The concept and general theme of the album is “Songs That Inspire”. The album comprises of contemporary Irish artists covering influential musicians and songwriters that gave them the initial spark to start a band. The album is entitled “Sparks n’ Mind,” as it deals with themes of personal and creative growth, hope and guidance, which we feel are relevant to the themes “Aware” deals with, in helping people suffering from depression.

The artists involved with the album range from the cutting edge of the Irish Indie scene to the some the most established acts in the country. The album varies from big selling Irish artists like Bell X1, The Thrills, Damien Dempsey and Lisa Hannigan, to up and coming alternative acts like Ham Sandwich, Cowboy X, The Flaws, and LeGalaxie, to name but a few.

Many of the bands will be recorded in Temple Lane Recording Studios, state of the art Apollo studio, by the Sound Training Centre final year students.

The release date is set for the 12th of June through 1969 Records

1. The Flaws - The Killing Moon (Echo & the Bunnymen)
2. Ham Sandwich - Stay (Shakespeare's Sister)
3. Mick Pyro - God Moves On The Water (Blind Willie Johnson)
