It would seem as if I'm only now discovering the great music that passed me by over two years ago. Just a couple of weeks ago, I discovered the magic that is LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends (although, truth be told, I probably would not have noticed it when I was 27 simply because the overall tone of the song just resonates so much more with me now, given my very-much-lost-and-hopefully-just-seemingly-stuck-in-a-rut-soon-to-be-30-years-old state of mind these days).

Today, it's the incredibly melodic and atmosphere Radiohead - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi which reminds me very much of my favourite Radiohead tune - Street Spirit - but just much happier.

The one main thing that you may notice listening to them both is the simple underlying string melody which just repeats throughout. Simple, yet effective.
