Low Rising, by The Swell Season

Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, The Guy and The Girl from the wonderful movie Once, have a new album out as The Swell Season, gloriously titled Strict Joy. This video, from the first single, was directed by Sam Beam, a former professor of cinematography better known for his own musical career as Iron & Wine. I love its gentle good humor about the running together of joy and sadness, solitude and partnership, our personal storms and the weather outside.
