The Swell Season is made up of guitarist Glen Hansard and pianist Marketa Irglova. If you haven’t seen the movie, Once, which they were in, I’d definitely recommend it. Further than the music, these two have a fantastic sound together, and will be making their way to Newport Folk Festival next weekend. They recently recorded a track for Levi’s Pioneer Sessions, covering Candi Staton’s Young Hearts Run Free. Check out their version of Young Hearts Run Free here.

I’ve been enamored of this song since I posted the mp3 for Night and Day a month ago. Also don’t sleep on their other track that they’ve released, Your Direction is fantastic. Stay on the lookout for their debut full-length Modern Rituals, it’s out August 17 courtesy of Domino; or check back here I’m sure I’ll end up reminding everyone.

Pop Synth band The Pass, out of Kentucky, are setting up a release to their upcoming album Burst with this video. Premiered on Pretty Much Amazing the song ‘Treatment of the Sun’ kind of sounds like Empire of the Sun. It’s highly catchy, danceable, and the video is a lot of fun.
