Wow.  Today just got so much better.

Swell Season (Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova) who many will remember from the amazing movie Once, have just announced that they are releasing a second CD and we will only have to wait until September!
If none of these people are ringing any bells, Once was the movie that won for Best Song (Falling Slowly) at the Oscars a couple of years back.  Host John Stewart brought Irglova back out on the stage, so she could have a chance to speak.  Then their song Falling Slowly, which is the definition of perfect, was immortalized when American Idol winner Kris Allen sung it during movie song week.
The news of second CD is literally the best news I have heard in the longest time.  If you haven’t seen ONCE you are an awful person.  There I said it.  Awful.  You know how you can change that?  Watch Once and love it like I know you will.
