OK I've finally been smacked in the face by the charms of Olafur Arnaulds. His Found Songs mini album is one of the most moving albums of neo classical music I've heard in ages. It really is the soundtrack to the saddest moments in your life. Normally the office is full with people talking stuff and nonsense but when Olafur came on it commanded silence and folks listened and got on with their work. Hey I should play it all the time! It really is some of the most beautiful somber sounding music I've been exposed to in a long time. Amazingly all of the music was given away free as part of a 7 songs for 7 days series a while back via twitter whilst fans posted artwork up on Flickr.... It's the future... but it's the present... I can't quite get my head around it all. So it's kind of pricey for 7 songs which were given away free but the label soften the blow with an 11 track compilation (label sampler) so you're getting a wee bit more for your money. With the vinyl you get a high quality download of the album and the comp album as well so the deal is getting better. There's amazing solo piano pieces (fans of that amazing Nils Frahm album will lap it up). There's Max Richter esque maudlin moments of neo classic anguish while you see your heart ripped out from within you in front of your eyes... so moving.... There's some twinkly Sigur Ros isms on there as well (he is from Iceland....). I could go on. The strings are utterly delightful to the point of me getting goose pimples on my arm while I'm typing. Always a good sign. This is some seriously beautiful music! Go on Arthur!
