Ireland's Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova are the Academy Award-winning duo behind the movie "Once," which you probably bawled over if you're not a robot. After riding that wave of momentum, the duo returned to the studio with Interpol producer Peter Katis and members of Hansard's band The Frames to record a follow-up called "Strict Joy." Early singles from the disc hint at a soulful sound reminiscent of Van Morrison and The Band.
