The Swell Season: Tiny Desk Concert

Anyone who saw the movie "Once" undoubtedly fell in love with Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova and their wonderful music, including their hit Falling Slowly, which was introduced to a whole new audience when it was covered by Kris Allen during this past season of American Idol. While visiting NPR I was thrilled to find that they have a follow-up album to Once titled Strict Joy, out October 27th.

If you're interested in a sneak preview, visit NPR's Tiny Desk Concert for 30+ minutes of Glen, Marketa and a battered acoustic guitar emanating beautiful music.
