Episode Summary

The Swell Season covers Neutral Milk Hotel
It's not often--never, to be exact--that we have Oscar winners in our office, but we were thrilled that Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, a.k.a. The Swell Season, agreed to stop by and cover Neutral Milk Hotel's "Two-Headed Boy" for Undercover. The duo has been riding an incredible wave since starring together in the film Once, for which they won the Best Original Song Oscar in 2008. They brought a full band to rock through the song, and even added something extra at the end--a bit of Neutral Milk's "The King Of Carrot Flowers Pts. 2-3." After they left our little room, The Swell Season headed out to a sold-out concert at Ravinia, then flew to a sold-out show at the Hollywood Bowl and an appearance on The Tonight Show. All in all, a pretty good week.moreless
