The compilation's 21-track lineup is impressive, the reason behind it -- the sudden death of Mulcahy's wife Melissa, leaving him to raise his three-year old twins alone -- heartbreaking.
The opening track, Thom Yorke's percussive, electro-tinged cover of Miracle Legion's "All For The Best," is also impressive, making it his own, while retaining the spirit of the original. As a result, fans of Radiohead, Miracle Legion, and Mulcahy should equally enjoy.
The full album is out 9/29 via Shout! Factory. An additional 20 tracks from folks like A.C. Newman, Buffalo Tom and Laura Veirs will be released digitally. Also expect concerts to coincide with the release. One will take place in London, one in New York
