James Blake - Are You Even Real?
You know that thing where you hear a song for the first time and everything stops for a while. All the background noise sort of evaporates and you're left, usually rooted to the spot, in a state where you can only concentrate on what is playing. Time completely goes away and whatever is pouring into your ears becomes the single most important piece of music you've ever heard. I hope what I am describing here is universal and not a consequence of my badly wired brain because this song is exquisite. It's fragile, yet powerful, and has completely floored me.
