Lovesong: Near Light: Living Room Songs: Olafur Arnalds

This was brought to my attention by the excellent blog 'Me and My Big Mouth'.
Icelandic contemporary composer Ólafur Arnalds created and released a new song, one per day for a whole week during the month of October 2011. The songs were recorded and filmed live in the living room of his Reykjavik apartment and released instantly for free as streamed videos and mp3 downloads.
This sounds like the soundtrack from a mournful Scandinavian drama.
You can see the other six videos and still download the album for free here.
