Moment of transcendence

This is my most recent listening-on-a-loop musical obsession.  Usually I simply tolerate the videos made to accompany songs, since they often have nothing to do with the text and don't seem to enrich the song at all.  This, though, might be the most beautiful video I've ever seen — certainly the most beautiful one created by and featuring the singer-songwriter himself.  And that's on top of the song being an utterly gorgeous production in its own right.

Radical Face's song "Welcome home son" has been sort of played out over the past few years, but I don't think it can hold a candle to "Always gold."  Introspection beats power ballad for me, every time.
