The Cinematic Orchestra

I wrote about Patrick Watson about a month ago, and now he has reappeared for an absolutely breaktaking collaboration with The Cinematic Orchestra. I've never been much into "ambient" or "chillout" music, which is what The Cinematic Orchestra is generally filed under... But their new album Ma Fleur reaches outside of that genre and should appeal to a much broader audience. The album was written as a "soundtrack" to an imaginary film and each song has a coordinating photo. This song, in particular, is heartbreakingly beautiful.
