Whew. This edition of Stealing the Covers gets no easier. Van Morrison needs no one else to jump on and lend a hand. He’ll do just fine on his own, thank you very much. BUT . . . who wants to cover a shitty song? The inherent and unavoidable quandry. They’re fun, but the best ones are never easy.
The Swell Season is Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. If you haven’t seen the film Once, you should. If you haven’t heard much of his band, The Frames, we think you should do that when you have a moment. The long and short is that they are good at their jobs. Let Glen hurtle you towards the end of April.
It’s a Thursday, folks. There’s light at the end of this week’s tunnel and, depending on your forecast, it’s getting brighter. More coming later today.
