The River Empires – “Overture In Thales Summer” [2010]

This song has some of the most shockingly beautiful vocal harmonies I’ve ever heard. This includes all dimensions of music – classical, pop, ambient, whatever. You know when something feels so good that you go crazy a bit? Well that’s what’s going on here.It’s painfully euphoric.  The rest of the song is pretty great too, but just listen for the harmonies.

The rest of the record is great as well. It’s supposed to be the soundtrack to a trilogy of films, but I’m not sure if that ever came together. I feel like it’s one of those albums that’s a buried treasure, waiting to be rediscovered and loved all over again. I only discovered it this year – not sure how, but I’m glad it crossed my path.
