Glen & Colm Kill Everytime

Following on from The Swell Season‘s 2006 self-titled debut album and the film that grew out of it, Glen Hansard (pictured above, extreme left) and Markéta Irglová released a second long player last year. Strict Joy was the title of that album and its release followed on from the low-budget success of Once (2007) and their subsequent Best Original Song Oscar for Falling Slowly in 2008. The duo are still gigging and recording and have just released an acoustic version of Candi Staton’s disco classic Young Hearts Run Free. You can download it for free at Levi’s Pioneer Sessions site. It’s the second in a series of a dozen free downloads that will be available over the coming weeks from the site and will also include tracks from She & Him, The Shins and Dirty Projectors. You just need to provide your email address and a few details and a link to the mp3 will appear moments later in your inbox. Here’s another cover of a pop hit that Glen did a few years ago with Colm Mac Con Iomaire (pictured above on the right of the frame)

  1. I don’t have much time for Ms Spears so I’d never heard this song, but I think the cover is spectacular! I especially liked Colm’s playing around with Pachelbel’s Canon at the end. I’ve been avoiding Lissie’s cover of “Bad Romance” (I just can’t abide the dance-pop crap – Gaga in particular) but since I really like Lissie, this cover just may push me past the point of objection. Thanks (I think) Pat…

  2. It’s from a covers album called Even better than the real thing, organised by Ray D’Arcy of Today FM for charity.
