Vampire Weekend Harmonizes, Glen Hansard Gets Dark

Glen Hansard
By 93XRT

Vampire Weekend played a "no cell phone allowed" Lollapalooza aftershow last summer where they debuted new music. "Harmony Hall" seemed like a great song to start off with. Two songs featuring Danger Mouse get some play on this week's show - a collaboration with Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeah's and the return of Broken Bells, his longtime project with James Mercer of The ShinsGlen Hansard has a song that is an absolute departure from the sound we've come to know. I love it...and I hope you do, too!  Check out the whole playlist below.
