[NEW RELEASES] The Swell Season
“I know we’re not where I promised you we’d be by now,” Glen Hansard sings on “The Rain,” only for Marketa Irglova to respond on the haunting and beautiful “Fantasy Man,” “The force that swept us both away/ Was too strong for us to fight.”
Irglova’s other track “I Have Loved You Wrong,” is also filled with warmth and regret, softly climaxing with the duo crooning in harmony, “You’ve been every now and then on my mind.” The most memorable track is “Low Rising,” but less for any sentiment and more for a bold sound played with abandon and layered with horns, standing in contrast to an album filled with breakup songs which are somewhere in between folk-rock and power ballads.
