The Swell Season |

February 6, 2010 by USA Post 

The Swell Season | Season, with members of the frames (Glenn earlier in the band). The latest CD, joy strict, was one of the favorite albums of last year. The songs are full of words of honest and beautiful melodies. “Fantasy Man”, “High Horses” and “low” Three of my favorite songs.

Last time I played Swell Season in New York City Radio City Hall for music, it was in May 2008, just a few months after members of the main Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová won the Oscar for “Falling Slowly.” Once the craze in full swing, you do not have a problem selling out of this remarkable place at that time. But to fill Radio City again after almost two years, and this time with the awards did not show the moment of cooling water to help stimulate sales of tickets? Now this is a good thing.

A reader who was in the Hall of Radio City Music on Tuesday evening to see this season Swell sent me this amazing link. In the midst of sweet, sad saxophone, once again, it becomes a singalong. Holy heck.

Even last night in the Swell Season (pictured at the end of the last gig) gave another RCMH sold to a crowd of money’s worth with performance Searingly emotional. This is the only way they know how to do it. I saw Hansard and Irglová to play a small audience in the press last fall, and they fill this small club with exactly the same emotional intensity as they did last night in a large chamber. Wherever they found themselves on stage, holding these things back.
