1. Sinead O’Conner – Real VIP – Sinead has a realness thats hard to find in the x factor generation. I heard her do this song at Electric Picnic and it reminded me of her power and importance. Maith an Cailín!!!
2. Pearse McGloughlin – Spherosphere – Pearse is probobly my favorite lyricist at the moment. His songs feel like novels. His first album was really special, with a unique flavour, rare in these days of albums being no more than a collection of tracks. This track is taken from his latest EP Twine.
3. Morcheba – Run Honey Run – I never really listened to Morcheba. But then I heard this cover of a John Martin song from his debut album London Conversation. Its everything that good music should be…inventive, soulfull and dynamic.
