Music Monday - Cinematic Orchestra

Cinematic Orchestra is a UK group whose style is described as a fusion between jazz improv and electronica. However, the song I enjoy the most, "To Build a Home", features a piano accompanied by a string quartet. "To Build a Home" has been played during a number of TV shows including Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Ugly Betty, and Without a Trace. The pianist and singer in "To Build a Home" is Canadian Patrick Watson. Pitchfork has a review of the album "Ma Fleur" that contains "To Build a Home".
