Oren Lavie

This is a featured video on youtube today and was the free download of the week on iTunes last week, so you've probably already seen it, but it was too intriguing not to post.

The artist is Oren Lavie and the song comes off his 2007 (UK)/2008 (US) album The Opposite Side of the Sea. In general, Oren's sound is quiet, calm and oddly familiar and comforting. There is something very aged in the musical structure and instrumentation - almost as if he was raised on the subdued classics of Wagner preludes and Mahler symphonies. Give him a listen and let me know what you think.
