Song of the Week [#141]

This week’s song (or should I say this year’s song.. haven’t done this in awhile…) is the soon to be classic Max Richter – On The Nature of Daylight, which is by no means a new song.. though the video certainly is! Haunting and powerful.. the song (and video) won’t ever fade away…

Au/Ra – Concrete Jungle
