It’s that time of year where John Loftus who presents Sounds from a Green World on 8radio.com every week brings you his favourite 45 Irish tracks of the past 12 months.
Safe to say it’s been a wonderful year for Irish musical releases so it was mammoth task to boil the year’s musical output to just 45 tunes but that is what he has done and you can listen to them all right now.
The other thing that will strike you about the selection is the range of musical genres represented, which is only a proper reflection of the rich choice of music available to Irish music lovers these days.
It’s also been a strong year for acts from Limerick so quite a number of them feature in the Fave 45 including PowPig, Bleeding Heart Pigeons, Laura Mulcahy, Slow Riot & Post Punk Podge & the Technohippies and whenyoung.
The selection is capped off with Lofty’s favourite Irish track of the year which is from frequent visitors to Dolans and a band Seoda Shows’ John Hennessy certainly loves - Fontaines DC.
We hope you enjoy the tunes!!
