On My iPod: Rose Byrne

After a busy year on the big screen (''Bridesmaids,'' ''X-Men: First Class''), the Aussie actress, 32, returns to ''Damages'' (Wednesdays, 9 p.m., DirecTV)

Feist, Metals

''Maybe it's the guitars, but there's something Wild West about it, abandoned and wild. It's darker and heavier — not alienating, just evolved.''

George Byrne, George Byrne

''This is my brother! It's a beautiful, beautiful album, like Pink Floyd meets Ryan Adams.''

The Mighty Diamonds, ''When the Right Time Come (I Need a Roof)''

''I've been getting really into reggae. It's great, not too sort of druggy-political and very mellow, but things never get too repetitive.''

Lucinda Williams, Essence

''I always go back to her. She's one of the best singer-songwriters in America — just brilliant. And such a great voice.''

Cat Power, ''Metal Heart''

''A lot of other Cat Power songs resonate with me, but this one particularly... It's definitely a song I fell in love to.''

INXS, ''Don't Change''

''It reminds me of growing up, of summers when I was a kid. It makes me nostalgic.''
