As half of the Swell Season, Markéta Irglová's adult life has been dedicated to making pretty songs that people listen to while breaking up. But 23 is awfully young to be hemmed in by the sad-sack market, and her first solo album, Anar, could have gone in any number of directions. It is different than any Swell Season album, in that any inkling of folk music—guitars, irony—has been expunged. What's left are Irglová's classically trained piano and voice on an LP's worth of earnest torch songs. Soon they will be in movies, during scenes where people run through the rain with tears streaming down their faces. The songs are undeniably beautiful, especially if your heart has just been put through the wringer. REBECCA WILSON
