"2009 album from this duo consisting of Glen Hansard (leader of The Frames) and Czech singer Marketa Irglova. They were the stars of the movie Once, and in their musical guise generated a wave of acclaim worldwide during the 2008 awards season garnering two Grammy nominations and an Oscar win for Best Original Song for the hit single 'Falling Slowly'. The duo performed the song on the Oscars telecast (and a host of key TV shows around the world) and Irglova provided one of the most memorable and poignant moments of the evening when host Jon Stewart called her back to the stage after a commercial break to give her acceptance speech. Strict Joy is the follow-up to their self-titled debut. The 12 new, original songs on Strict Joy were recorded last year and document a time of great change, tumult and progression."

"The stars of one of my favourite films, Once, are back together with a brand new album and some brand new music. Strict Joy is bit more sombre than the Once soundtrack or The Swell Season’s self-titled debut, but the lyrical poetry and gorgeous harmonies have stayed with me from the very first moment I heard the album. The deluxe version of Strict Joy also included a live recording, An Evening at the Riverside Theatre. The live recording is fantastic, showing why The Swell Season are even better in concert than they are in the studio."

"The Swell Season, the Oscar-winning duo of Frames frontman Glen Hansard and Czech ingénue Marketa Irglova, have released Strict Joy, the follow-up to their beloved, surprise hit 2007 film and gold-certified soundtrack 'Once.' The twelve new, original songs on Strict Joy document a time of great change and tumult.

Strict Joy, which borrows its name from a work by Irish poet James Stephens, was co-produced by Hansard and Peter Katis (The National, Interpol), and recorded mostly at Katis' Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT. In addition to Hansard and Irglova, the album features Frames members Colm Mac Iomaire (violin), Joe Doyle (bass), Rob Bochnik (guitar), plus guitarist Javier Mas (Leonard Cohen), pianist Thomas Bartlett (Doveman), percussionist Chad Taylor (Chicago Underground Duo), horn players Steven Bernstein and Clark Gayton from Levon Helm's band, and others. The Swell Season generated a wave of acclaim during the 2008 awards season including two Grammy nominations and an Oscar win for Best Original Song, for their hit single "Falling Slowly." The duo performed the song on the Oscars telecast, and Irglova provided one of the most memorable and poignant moments of the evening when host Jon Stewart called her back to the stage after a commercial break to give her acceptance speech."
