Quarter Inch Collective is a Dublin-based record label that is poised to release Quompilation, which features 13 of Ireland's finest indie acts covering their favourite track of 2010.
The song selections are varied, ranging from international megahits like Rihanna's 'Rude Boy' and Kanye West's 'Lost In The World' to homegrown compositions like Villagers' 'Becoming A Jackal' and Squarehead's 'Fake Blood'.
My personal favourite is the blissed out cover of Twin Shadow's 'Castles In The Snow' by Sacred Animals, and I also quite like Kid Karate's rawkin' take on Tinie Tempah's 'Pass Out'.
