glen hansard & marketa irglova: the swell season

It's a sad and rainy day in Nashville, and this is the right music for it.

A couple notes on this album: This is a side project for Glen Hansard who is the lead singer for an Ireland-based band called The Frames. He's been getting a ton of publicity recently because of his work as lead actor and musician on the independent film Once - a brilliant modern day musical about a chance encounter between a guy and a girl.

Here's what I need you to do:
  • Listen to Track 3 below, "Falling Slowly"
  • If you like the song, go rent Once and watch it this weekend without exception
  • If you like the movie, come back here and listen to the album The Cost by The Frames
Finally, want to give a quick shout-out to friends who lost their jobs yesterday. I'm sorry... it sucks... I hate it very much, and we all miss you.

Kudos...great artists. I was recently given the Once CD as a gift and it is excellent. Today was a perfect day for Once.

While we are on the subject of music, go here and take a listen to the this song that is going to be on a compilation that Brian McLaren is putting together. I won't say any more than that. Let me know what you think. :)
