“Low Rising,” from the album Strict Joy, by The Swell Season, 2009 :: via Boing Boing
Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, The Guy and The Girl from the wonderful movie Once
, have a new album out as The Swell Season, gloriously titled Strict Joy. This video, from the first single, was directed by Sam Beam, a former professor of cinematography better known for his own musical career as Iron & Wine
. I love its gentle good humor about the running together of joy and sadness, solitude and partnership, our personal storms and the weather outside.
