So, there's this indie band called The Antlers that my friend recently introduced me to and they have this superb
concept album called "Hospice". It follows a male nurse or some sort of male medical professional who falls in love with a terminally ill patient.
Anyway, you have to listen to the whole album (which is a little less than an hour long) to appreciate it. It's really heart-wrenching stuff.
Here's a couple of songs off of the album:
YouTube - Bear by The Antlers (2009)
YouTube - The Antlers - Two
Check it out.
