somas album

I got an email from Soma a few weeks ago, but i'm only getting around to listening to it now.
Three of my friends, Mezer, Eric and Walshy are in the Band and unfortunately I have only been to one of their gigs so far. I've been listening to their songs all evening, and they're not so bad!
< Begin Press Release >
Soma’s album, “The Somatic LP” is now available to buy for just €5 at the following outlets:
  • Music Zone, Carrigaline, Co Cork
  • Plugged Records, Washington Street, Cork
  • Tower Records, 6-8 Wicklow St, Dublin
  • For digital download at downloadmusic.ie/soma
  • From the locker/boot of any of the band members!
There are 11 songs on the album cites influences from The Smashing Pumpkins, The Foo Fighters, Ash, Death Cab for Cutie, Jessica Alba and My Bloody Valentine.

The album was recorded from Nov 08 to Feb 09 in various locations in Cork. The album was mastered in April 09 by Richard Dowling in Limerick who as previously worked with such greats as S Club 7, Rachel Stevens, Steps and Busted. (He has also worked with some unknowns such as David Bowie, The Foo Fighters, The Undertones, Jools Holland and Interpol…ahem!)

Try before you buy, you can listen to the songs at: myspace.com/somamusiccork

There was a load of free copies to people who knew them, but apparently I don't get one (something about not trusting me...)
Anyway, if you were wondering who is who on the album cover:
  • Mezer would be the same as Cindy in the lower left
  • Eric is the same as Marcia
  • Walshy is where Bobby is
  • And lets not forget Dave who is in the same spot as Greg
Head over to their website anyway and have a listen to a few songs!
