In an attempt to raise money to make our second record we've switched this one to Pay What You Want. Feel free to pay nothing, though. We'd rather you just took it, if we're honest, but on the off chance you absolutely adore it and want to give us some money for it, now you can.
'Artificial Life from a Digital Sea' is the debut album from Edinburgh folk band Loch Awe. The idea was conceived on July 29th 2010, and the record was written, recorded and released by August 30th.
Nice things people have said:
"...on record they’ve an instantly familiar air about them, a great addition to the capital’s burgeoning indie folk scene." - The Tidal Wave of Indifference
"Darling, Your Lover in particular is one of those songs which brought me back in from the next room to listen to. I am not sure what it is about it, but it’s a song I definitely find compelling for some reason, and that’s the magic ingredient I suppose." - Song, by Toad
"...the haunting The Ocean in Me [is] a gorgeous wee multi-instrumental Celtic march... a perfect introduction to a cracking wee set of songs..." - It's Bloggerin' Time
"Standout tracks 'Resign' and 'Lullaby From A Digital Sea' are quite staggering, multi-layered folk gems that won't fail to bring a smile to you face. Apparently, the watery Loch Awe is affectionately known as the 'Jewel of Argyll'. Might not be long before this folky Loch Awe are bestowed a similar honour. Best get used to the name, we'll be hearing a lot more from them I'm sure!" - Kowalskiy
"Loch Awe are the perfect soundtrack for a cool Autumn, now fast approaching, it will heal the souls of the troubled as they walk through a deserted coastal town, and it’ll make ache the hearts that find themselves reflected in the lyrics." - Argos Barks
"Loch Awe have surprised me. It isn’t that I doubted I would like a band that includes a ukulele in it’s ranks, it’s the fact that their debut album ‘Artificial Life From A Digital Sea‘ was written and recorded in a matter of weeks. If this wasn’t enough to impress me, they’ve only been together since the end of July. The Edinburgh outfit haven’t even played their first gig, yet the album sounds like it’s been a labour of love which has developed over time." - Elba Sessions
"Damn fine free debut EP/Album from fresh faced Edinburgh folk trio Loch Awe. Go download this now!" - Define Pop
"The latest young scamps to catch me off guard were Edinburgh folk outfit Loch Awe, they remind me a lot of bands like Foxface or even a bit of Meursault, it's indie pop with a Celtic tinge. I'm probably not doing it much justice, instead of reading my ramblings you should check out their debut album." - Peenko
"I love bands with a raw sound. Where you feel like you are in the room with them while they are playing. And I love bands that make music from the heart. That’s why I absolutely LOVE this album." - I'd Like To Think That This Is Love...
"This dreamy little folk treasure already is the soundtrack to my autumn." - Essay 2.0
