"EMI's highly eclectic Greatest Songs Ever series return to Ireland for another pint of Celtic music both traditional and modern. On the traditional front, mainstays like the Chieftains ("Cotton Eyed Joe") and the Fureys ("Green Fields of France") brush shoulders with new traditionalists like Nan Tom Teaimín ("Lambs on the Green Hills") and Donal Cassidy, Jr. ("Old Bush/Crooked Road to Dublin/Man of the House"). The rest of the collection focuses on contemporary sounds from Clannad ("Dulamann") to Paul Ashe-Browne and Bill Whelan's "Riverdance," but there's a solid middle ground between the two that keeps this amiable anthology afloat, despite the questionable inclusion of Alabama-born American country siren Emmylou Harris' beautiful but dreadfully out-of-place "Sonny."

17. Temple Bar - Rodrigo Sanchez / Gabriela Quintero
18. Waters Of March - Richie Buckley

"The accompanying soundtrack to the 2006 Irish film Goldfish Memory, the album takes a special interest in Irish musicians, featuring them (occasionally reworking Antonio Carlos Jobim's songs) and showing off the diversity of the Irish indie scene. And Although Rodrigo y Gabriela, the virtuoso guitar duo, are originally from Mexico, they first made their name busking on the streets of Dublin, so they (kind of) fit, too. The album spans rock, hip-hop, and pop (though most of it focuses on the softer Brazilian side), and is a pleasing effort overall."

Released in Ireland on March 4 2005.

"Produced By…’ brings together 25 years work from master producer Trevor Horn. ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’ (incidentally, the first record played on MTV) was Trevor’s his first hit in 1979 and a rare instance on which he played the role of writer, performer and producer. 2004 is represented by a gorgeous track from Lisa Stansfield’s album ‘The Moment’, notable as the first time she had used an outside producer in 15 years.

In between we have generation defining recordings from ABC and Frankie Goes To Hollywood; classic pop twenty years apart from Dollar and taTu; an unlikely hit for Yes; innovation and invention in the form of ‘Buffalo Gals’ ; a timeless dance classic from Grace Jones and a man whose entire career has seen him hand-in-hand with Trevor, Seal. Showing the sheer diversity of his production cannon, we also include alternative rock from The Frames, a beautifully realised Shane MacGowan ballad and hugely influential recordings from Art of Noise. Here’s to the next 25 years……"

"The second volume of KMTT FM 103.7's Mountain Music Lounge series contains snippets -- tunes -- from individual programs aired during 2005. While some real names appear here -- Patty Griffin, the Finn Brothers, Tori Amos, Ben Lee, Joss Stone -- it's the up-and-comers who offer the finest performances. The highlights come from Jackie Greene performing his fine "Honey, I Been Thinking About You," Irish punk band the Frames playing unplugged while doing their negative anthem "Fake," Ray LaMontagne with his utterly soulful and fabulous "Trouble," and Marc Broussard's "Home." For those fascinated by the intimacy of this show, this set will be a blessing. Also, completists of any of the aforementioned artists will have to seek out these generally moving and bright performances."

Info: "Call it the miracle of evolution if you want. By accident or design, the Frames have always done whatever the hell they wanted, led by their noses through a funhouse of big label hoopla and indie intrigues. Frequently without a pot to piss in, they are nevertheless the envy of any band tethered to the industry treadmill, a maverick lot more at home in the ditch than the middle of the road. The band's fourth album For The Birds is the latest in a series of beautiful mistakes. If 1999's lauded Dance The Devil album recast the band from a super acoustic rock monster into a quirky and crafty entity on a par with soul mates like dEUS and The Dirty Three, then For The Birds is the baptismal rite after that rebirth. The Frames are one of the No 1 selling multi platinum Irish Bands to hit the international music scene."

Duyster: "In 2000 Studio Brussel, Belgium's biggest alternative radio, started with the now legendary and acclaimed show DUYSTER. Every Sunday from 10pm 'till midnight the finest in slowcore, indietronics, kraut- & postrock, new folk and singer-songwriter collides in 2 hours of unrestrained melancholy and deafening sweetness held together by the beautiful and sincere voice of Ayco Duyster and the exquisite musical taste of Eppo Janssen.

To celebrate the show's 5th anniversary Studio Brussel and Play It Again Sam joined hands for a deluxe 2CD set containing a collection of Duyster classics and the highlights of the intimate acoustic Duyster sessions.

As the reactions on this first compilation exceeded everyone's expectations and as Aycos & Eppos Classics wishlist and the amount of stunning Duyster Sessions kept on growing, a follow up was bound to come. On June 6th duyster II will be released.

Hopefully this will be the start of a unique collection of compilations containing a unique collection of songs."

18. I'm Not There - The Band, Bob Dylan

"Just as Todd Haynes's Bob Dylan biopic I'M NOT THERE takes an unusual approach by having several different people portraying the artist, so the accompanying soundtrack skirts expectations by sporting a wide variety of artists tackling the Dylan catalog, and including a wealth of lesser-known Dylan tunes. Over the course of two discs, Haynes assembles an impressive cast of contributors, from arena-size names (Eddie Vedder, Willie Nelson) to indie-rock cult heroes (Mark Lanegan, Sufjan Stevens) and Dylan contemporaries (Richie Havens, Ramblin' Jack Elliott).

Some of the tracks stick relatively close to the feel of the originals, like Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy's earthy, folk-rock take on "Simple Twist of Fate," while others leap headlong into reinvention, like Calexico and Iron & Wine's atmospheric, wah-wah-soaked collaboration on "Dark Eyes." In the end, one of the most significant accomplishments of this soundtrack may be the exposure of such relative esoterica as "Man in the Long Black Coat" and "Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)" to an audience outside the closed circle of devout Dylanologists. Oh, and the title track is a previously unreleased tune performed by the man himself. Take that, completists!"

Glen Hansard - This Gift

"Glen Hansard is quickly becoming a fixture on movie soundtrack scene these days. After penning the song “Take the Heartland” for the blockbuster “The Hunger Games” earlier this year the Irishman has now taken a turn towards lighter fare contributing “The Gift” for the much anticipated Disney family film “The Odd Life of Timothy Green”."

"Hansard’s song “ThIs Gift” can also be found on the deluxe version of the Irish performer’s successful maiden solo post-Swell Season release “Rhythm and Repose. ” The soft, melodic piano-driven tune was debuted on Late Night Show David Letterman show by Glen with help from Brooklyn Youth Chorus. After the rousing rendition of the song, gap-toothed talk show host pointedly asked Glen of his notoriously weathered and worn acoustic guitar if “people had (been) shooting at ya?” "
