Being a NYC boy of somewhat Irish descent (the plot lines twist a bit between the Scots and the French) with a yen for carved hearts and inimitable rock and roll, I have always had a soft spot for Glen Hansard. Mostly with the Frames but who couldn’t love the tender Yeats of his solo sessions? And so I’d be happy to share this new clip of his, “Winning Streak” (the first notch from Didn’t He Ramble, due 9.18 via Anti-), because the song is lovely as Hansard has ever been but the video, it turns out, was edited by Pinpoint Contributor (and periodic salvation), Melissa Huffsmith-Roth, and being that the damn thing is lovely and patient and touching and just warms all our old bones at HQ, we are over-the-moon STOKED! to share it with you. You can see it below. Sadly, NPR scooped us on this debut. Oh well. There are worse outlets to lose out to. Rockit.
