Music: M4, Part II

I had never heard of Faunts before, but a portion of their 40-minute exploratory rock music piece, "M4," is featured as the credits theme for "Mass Effect." I think the synth-y main keyboard riff and echoing guitar overlays fit particularly well in a game about exploring the galaxy. It's like Vangelis got shoved into Radiohead at a concert and they performed together.

The music video is even more interesting, featuring a brutal game of King of the Hill that might be some kind of metaphor...or not:
