“It was tricky in that we split up and had to remain in a band. Whenever we play music together, it’s f**kin’ intimate, there’s no two ways about it. You cannot sing with someone and not be intimate. It just doesn’t work, and that’s why I’m not playing in the band right now. I’m still in the band, but I’m not playing with Mar right now. … [T]he one thing that me and Mar have always been with each other is very honest. Mar needed to move in the direction she moved, I needed to move in the direction I moved, but we’re still very good. The saddest thing that could happen out of all of this is that we’d stop being friends. That’s the worst-case scenario. If me and her are still buddies … you know, she’s had to deal with discomfort, too. She’s had to deal with me making decisions that have hurt her. So Mar getting married is something that I think is very good for her. If I could say anything about Marketa, it’s that this really suits her personality. To get married with someone who loves and respects her and who she loves and respects, to me, makes total sense. I’m very happy for her, genuinely. And I really like Tim, he’s a f**king gentleman.”

Now Marketa is married to a member of the Swell Season crew and Glen … well, Glen is pretty freaking mature about it, all things considered. Keep reading »

Can we just utter a lil’ sigh? What’s got us most psyched about this year’s Oscars is Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova being nominated for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly”, one of the tunes they penned for Once, a movie they also starred in. The two are together in real life and were handpicked for the roles in the movie, about an Irish musician (Hansard) who makes an album with a Czech women (Irglova) he meets in Dublin. The film is overwhelmingly romantic, without having the slightest bit of sex or even kissing in it. And the soundtrack is amazing. Here’s Hansard and Irglova posing together for an Oscar portrait. We hope they win! [Fox Searchlight] Keep reading »
