Swell Season, Alice in Chains, Extreme

13th Aug 09 (Thu) Leave a comment Go to comments

The two singer-songwriters behind the movie ONCE, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (aka The Swell Season), are out and about promoting their new record, Strict Joy.  It’s available for pre-order on Amazon.  It is set to be released on September 29th.

They just did a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR.  Its available over here or as a podcast (do a search for “NPR Live Concerts” in iTunes).  They do some new songs in the NPR studio as well as some faves.


Alice in Chains‘ new one, Black Gives Way to Blue, is also available for pre-order

It’s out September 29th as well…


And rounding things out… Blabbermouth reports that Extreme recently recorded their August 8th show at the House of Blues in Boston for a DVD release later this year.

    Intrigued by the new AIC, but not completely sold. Lyrics to Check My Brain are pretty terrible.

    Yeah, not that the lyrics to earlier AiC albums were mind-blowing. ;)

    True, but these seemed particularly irritating. I’ll still check it out, tho.
