some of those fantasy backgrounds I nabbed during an image dump in /tg/. A part of me says these are just a little too indulgent but I think the compositions, whilst busy, are still very good. If you break them down into their structural components they're mostly pretty straightforward.
In other unrelated news, I suddenly like The Knife. Watch these three videos:
Okay, the third one isn't actually The Knife but Fever Ray, its lead singer's solo project. It's still nice, though. The combination of lo-fi casioish synthesised lines with that strange swedish voice and some really nice melodies make for some great songs.
