This is one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite movies. I’m surprised I haven’t posted it in all the years of having this blog….
The raw emotion and passion that Glen Hansard has when he sings is unrivalled in popular music today. Sit back and enjoy this one.
Found this track on the BIRP October 2012 playlist, and promptly downloaded the album. I like this track because of how the two vocals blend. It reminds me of Ben Gibbard (from Death Cab for Cutie) and Ethan (from the Archers – a local Victoria band). I’m excited to investigate the rest of the album.
The sounds are a little funky and it takes a while to get going, but super awesome and mellow. OoT was probably the first game I ever got immersed in. And I didn’t even finish it. I sat and watched my brother beat the last 3 temples and beat Ganon. Twas good times. Great soundtrack.
Here are some of my favourite songs from 2012. While not necessarily released this year, this is when I discovered them. So if you’re looking for some samples of some new tunes. Enjoy.
