We are giving away our debut album ‘Soon it will come time to face the world outside’ as a free download to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the albums initial release. The album was recorded in Dublin by producer Daniel Presley and originally released on Scottish label Shoeshine Records in 2002.
Here’s what some people said:
Uncut (4 stars) - “Occasionally a record comes along that's so intimate and immediate you want to disconnect the phone, get under the duvet and forget the outside world."
Mojo - "By the time you've got the full measure of their sombre elegance, the band are confirmed masters of the idiom."
The Irish Times (4 stars) - “Like Smog or Will Oldham or any great purveyors of rural lament, it offers warm solace through the perpetual tumbling of the seasons".
Maverick magazine, drownedinsound.com
all gave the album 4 star reviews.
One writer for Irish music site cluas.com
put Boa Morte’s album in his top 5 Irish albums of all time.
John Peel was a fan and twice played the band on his show.
In 2010 Boa Morte released their second album (The Dial waltz) through Cargo distribution in the UK and Ireland – go get it.
