Down To Earth: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Paul McGeechan…

For the latest SWH! podcast Ali caught up with the composer and producer Paul McGeechan to talk about the latest Starless album Earthbound, out now with Last Night From Glasgow.

Paul explains the origins behind Starless and how it has developed from the initial spark, through the recording of 2016’s Starless album, bringing it to the stage, how it has progressed into Earthbound, and the plans for the future.

The two discuss the collaborative process, who else is involved – and why, the importance of physical objects, the problems with promoting an album during a global pandemic, the importance of having a recognisable production and sound running through the Starless recordings, and a whole lot more. If you are interested in music in any shape or form then this is a conversation you’ll want to listen to.

You can get your own copy of Earthbound from Last Night From Glasgow.
