Swell Season's Low Rising

"Low Rising" is the lovely new single from The Swell Season, aka Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová from the film Once. The song comes from their latest album, Strict Joy. Interestingly, the video was directed by Sam Beam, who is better known for his musical recordings under the name Iron & Wine. I wonder if Beam was referencing Bad Luck Shleprock by having the rain falling just on their heads. Probably not, but it's still fun to think so. I had the opportunity to interview Glen and Mar before their recent Oakland, California concert. Stay tuned for more on that amazing experience, including a special performance for BB Video.
