Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.

Now this is weeeeird. I’d already planned on posting today’s track sometime during our little calendar here but ANC (wisely) suggested I save it for the solstice which was just too great a call to pass up. And strangely enough when peeking into the mailbox this afternoon, I was greeted with a package from Nintendo. My platinum Club Nintendo membership arrived and as it shakes out, is the soundtrack to the very game featured below!

MIND BLOWN.

“Astral Observatory” is probably my favorite theme from what is possibly my favorite Zelda game of all time: Majora’s Mask. I feel like it perfectly encapsulates the overall atmosphere of this installment: Dark, melancholy, mysterious a little scary and absolutely beautiful. I guess that’s how one could also sum up this season in general. Enjoy.
