The Swell Season- Words and Music- 2010

by Claudia Marshall
For Glen Hansard of the Frames, and Czech Pianist Marketa Irglova, The Swell Season started off as a diversion from their main projects. With the success of the movie, 'Once,' and the Oscar for their song 'Falling Slowly,' the duo decided this was more than a one-time thing, and released a follow-up album, 'Strict Joy.' They played some new tunes for FUV's Claudia Marshall, and Glen talked about Bono, Leonard Cohen, and the appropriateness of break-up songs on the new album. (1/21/10)
