Olafur Arnalds: Found Songs

Olafur Arnalds laments for your soul. This short little record displays a sense of beauty that puts him in a class with Max Richter and fellow countryman Johan Johansson. While brief in time, this EP is filled with timeless beauty that expounds upon the limitlessness of love and wanting. If you haven't yet heard of or heard Mr. Arnalds, I strongly suggest you check him out, as he is currently composing some of the most attractive Neo-Classical tunes around at the moment.

Score: 7.5/10

Gabe, it's just occurred to me that you might like this site--this guy has made short field recordings of sounds around the world. Some quiet, some joyous, all amazing. Click on the different countries at top for different sets of sounds:

I can't remember how I heard of it, but it was quite a few years ago.
