When Hansard and a dramatically younger Marketa Irglova started dating in real life, it felt kinda creepy. The CD packs all the joy of having your newly dumped best friend crying on your couch for an hour.
Surprisingly, the duo appeared to survive the romantic break-up with a very strong second album, 2009’s is a great EP trapped inside very sad LP. Whereas Adele, Amy Winehouse and Beck turned heartbreak into beautiful, universal songs about relationships, the lyrics in Hansard’s songs are so specific, they only appear to be about “that” relationship.

(Walsh-Peelo spoke by phone from Los Angeles, along with the film’s director, John Carney.) For Carney, however, the movie was a first of a very different sort.
Although the 44-year-old filmmaker has made a name for himself as the writer and director of films centered around music (“Once,” “Begin Again”), “Sing Street” was the first time he has worked with children. “I don’t think competition is good for children,” says Carney, who made hundreds of Irish teens, including Walsh-Peelo, wait in line for hours to audition.
Years before Hansard’s Academy Awards victory, a friend invited me to see the Frames headline the Abbey Pub in Chicago.
While early Frames albums captured their live spark, subsequents discs kept getting darker, quieter and more depressing.
