Looking Forward to the Swell Season

9 11 2009

Tonight we secured tickets to go see the Swell Season (Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard’s band) in concert at the end of the month.  I love them in the movie Once (click here for the review I wrote back when I first discovered the film), and their soundtrack for that film is outstanding.  They came out with a new album recently, Strict Joy, and it is even better than I had hoped.

Swell Season

The Swell Season’s music always resonates with authenticity.  Marketa and Glen are musicians that present their art without pretense or glamor.  Each song seems to have a stripped down quality to it, which is really refreshing.

It will surely be a treat to see them perform!
