LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

C athal McConnell's "Long Expectant This Way Comes" is an immensely moving album of Celtic-based music, as staunchly traditional as Irish folk music can be, while at other times it's as contemporary as a modern film score.

Lovebirds and polar bears ride the freight train whenever four shaggy thirtysomethings unpack their equipment. Sometimes the Orange Mothers sing 'cause they're depressed. Sometimes they sing 'cause they're out to lunch. Sometimes they sing 'cause they're happy, so happy.

A founding member of spaced-out art-rockers Mercury Rev, Dave Fridmann has in the last half-decade earned a reputation for producing lush, orchestrated pop records.

Plus, emotion-splattered acoustic punk, a 12-year-old gets his hands on a million-dollar violin, and more.
