There's a bunch of new Irish music available to stream and/or download for free this week. Having just released volume 2 of the A-Z Series, Ash are now offering a song called 'No Heartbreaker' as a free digital download ahead of Saturday's gig at London's Shepherd's Bush. The song comes as part of a three track digital EP which also features songs from support acts The Crimea and The Lines. All you have to do to get it is give them your email address over at www.ash-official.com
Meanwhile Choice Music Prize nominated instrumental rockers And So I Watch You From Afar have released a brand new song 'Straight Through The Sun' and all they're asking in return for the download is a plug on Twitter.

Experimental electronic duo Nouveaunoise have dropped another free EP this week. The free 2 track EP features 'Panaka' from their album 'Paraphrase Accolade' as well as a track called 'Psychasonic', and is available to download from nouveaunoise.bandcamp.com. While you're there you can also pick another 2 track EP made up of songs 'Goni' and 'Cinnte' or take advantage of a special deal on the album, which you can now download for the bargain basement price of just €3.
Finally, singer songwriter Ivan St John, formerly Pinky, releases his debut album 'Up To Snuff' this Friday November 12th. It's a lovely offbeat little album and you can listen to it via Soundcloud below.
