Even if the film Once didn't win you over to the music of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, the Oscars just might have. Not only did the two deliver a well-received performance of their song "Falling Slowly," they also won the Best Original Song award — not to mention some hearts after after Irglova was cut off at the microphone and then brought back out by Jon Stewart to accept the award with a touching and gracious speech.
Shortly before the Oscars, the pair stopped by the Spinner studio at AOL to perform several of their songs and talk about their partnership. The two had been making music together for years before Once came up, and now the film has gotten them a new, big time record deal. While we're waiting for a follow-up to their film and debut album, the Spinner podcast has much to tide us over — including an mp3 download and cool video of their studio performance of "Falling Slowly." To check out another of the videos, for the song "When Your Mind's Made Up," just read more.
