I'm in awe of Glen Hansard, he has this "not yet corrupted by fame" aura about him that's very appealing. I recently stumbled upon the video promoting his upcoming solo album, "Rythm and Repose". . . I find it heartwarming that even though M. Hansard and I are very culturally different, his music video "Philander" managed to stir-up emotions about my grandmother's house in Mexico (the colors and props, not the title)...how I remember it anyway. Some things are just globally identifiable...

"Rhythm and Repose is a result of Hansard’s last year and a half of living in New York City. The album was recorded by Patrick Dillett (David Byrne, Arto Lindsay, Laurie Anderson) and produced by Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The National, Antony and the Johnsons). The record features the musical talents of Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright) on bass, Ray Rizzo on drums, Nico Muhly and Rob Moose on strings (Bon Iver, Y Music), David Mansfield on slide guitar (Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Tour), Javier Mas (Leonard Cohen touring band) and half of Bruce Springsteen’s current horn section. Assisting on vocals are Cristin Milioti (Once, The Musical), Sam Amidon, Marketa Irglova and Aida Shahghasemi (Marketa Irglova touring band)." Quote by ANTI Records.
