Mysterious - Mario Paint Music Extended

Classic example of SNES ambience. One of the sound designers for the game went on to work on Earthbound, another game well known for it's creatively evocative music. One particular thing I love about this piece is its modern use of texture and space. The chord progression and the "melodies" that sparsely accompany it remind me of a lot of music coming out today similar to artists like James Blake and Bon Iver.

    I don't know why, but this song has always reminded me of Earthbound.
