Glen Hansard played Housing Works last night, plays Beacon Theatre later this month, and he will release his first solo album Rhythm and Repose tomorrow. So we figured it would be a good time to post this short solo set that Glen played at Hotel Vegan’s Thursday daytime show at SXSW in March. At just four songs its a bit of a tease, but interestingly the set represents each of period of his career. He opened with show with a song perhaps from Glen’s busking days in Dublin, the Irish traditional number “Spencer the Rover”. The balance of the show consisted of one each of a song from his upcoming solo album (“Love Don’t Keep Me Waiting”), a Frames song (“What Happens When The Heart Just Stops”, streaming below), and a song from The Swell Season. This sampler set is a good preview for the Beacon show, for which tickets are still available.

I recorded this set in the same manner as all of the other Hotel Vegan shows, with the Sennheiser MKH-8040 Cardioids mixed with a well balanced board feed. Other than some minor ambient noise from the outside tent location, the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    Thanks very much for this. One note – either you got the release date wrong, or you didn’t intend to post this until Monday since the album is out next Tuesday, the 19th (at least according to the merchandise link provided)… regardless, I’ll enjoy listening to this until then (and after!)

    Yup, its the 19th. That’s a Tuesday, which is when all new releases come out. The Frames site lists June 15, but I should have double checked.
