Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, FREE Live Concert Download

With all the attention the film "Once" has been getting in light of its Oscar win the other night, I figure people might want to hear more music from the film than just "Falling Slowly." NPR's music podcast All Songs Considered featured a Webcast and download of a concert that the Oscar-winning songwriters and performers Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova did in Washington, D.C. this past summer.

The podcast of the entire concert, which runs about an hour and a half, is still available for free on the NPR Web site here. As far as I know most of the songs in this concert are from the film "Once." These are many of the songs that Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova are performing on their current tour. They are performing under the name The Swell Season, which is also the name of the album that, according to the NPR Web site, they recorded before making "Once."
