Markéta Irglová first gained recognition in the role of "Girl" in the movie Once. The soundtrack gained momentum, and The Swell Season, her band with Glen Hansard, audience grew. Solo, Markéta Irglová does fairly fragile slightly folky-flavored pop.

Comments:

I love "Crossroads". The whole album is great. (christina_skov@hotmail.com)

Marketa Irglova's new solo album, Anar, is a pretty good debut. While at times it's got a little too much of the earnest piano balladeer thing going on, it's overall quite beautiful. Highlight: "Dokhtar Goochani," sung in Farsi. (JoAnn Whetsell)
