Yep. He’s the same guy in The Swell Season. This is Glen Hansard, ladies and gentlemen, and his band The Frames. They came from Dublin, and as the Irish always are, they’re freakin’ awesome. I absolutely love them. If they’d only make their albums available for download because as of this moment, I have found only one. It makes my heart break.
