For his third studio album, the former leader of The Frames broadens his field of action even more. With Between Two Shores, Glen Hansard is no longer just an icon of contemporary folk rock, but also an all-around musician and songwriter who is willing to venture down new avenues, no matter how surprising they may be. His 2018 edition slaloms between a rock that could almost pass for some Springsteen, an almost chamber choir soul and, of course, deeply moving folk rock. It’s not surprising then that the subtle and genial jazz drummer Brian Blade took part in this sophisticated record. But it’s in the most intimate sequences that Hansard proves to be the most astounding, such as when he blends his voice with a crepuscular trumpet on Wreckless Heart or when he makes his melody grow throughout Movin’ On. With restrained organ playing here, heavy brass instruments there (Roll On Slow, Lucky Man), and some dreamy piano parts (Time Will Be The Healer), Glen Hansard orchestrates every moment of his album with real skill. It’s impressive.
