The Swell Season – Strict Joy

by Hessam on January 11, 2010

How could I miss this!? I blame it on becoming a father and not having enough time to keep up with all the fantastic albums being released :)

Anyways, if you don’t know The Swell Season then you really should check them out! The duo consists of Glen Hansard, singer of the Irish rock band The Frames, and Markéta Irglová who is an actress and musician. The couple became internationally famous for their roles in the fantastic movie Once and subsequently won an Oscar for best original song.

Their new album Strict Joy was released back in October, and except for having a wicked album cover, it sounds really good. Here is a mix with two tracks from the new album, plus a collection of previous stuff they have done. I hope you will enjoy it.

Watch a trailer for the new album here.
