take on and a beau­ti­fully pas­toral of Queen Jane (bor­rowed from The Bothy Band), Doyle Kennedy rein­vents each and ev­ery song with an en­vi­ably jaded brio.

Mer­maid Records If the re­sult of road weari­ness is a thing of beauty such as Skull­cover, then maybe we should all hit the road. Maria Doyle Kennedy’s creative en­er­gies have de­liv­ered a trio of out­stand­ing al­bums, and with each re­lease her dis­tinc­tive voice has evolved fur­ther into its own de­li­cious space. This cov­ers CD, recorded in 2004 for a lim­ited edi­tion web­site re­lease, justly makes its de­but on the back of her 2007 col­lec­tion, Mütter. Swing­ing from a gor­geously creaky ver­sion of The Bug­gles’ Video Killed the Ra­dio Star to a truly apoca­lyp­tic Red Sails in the Sun­set
