Today looks to be one of those Moby “Hotel: Ambient” sort of days.
Moby’s new album, titled “Wait For Me” is out and after previewing it, I’m going to have to get it. It’s great. Best new album I’ve heard since Plant/Kraus combined for “Raising Sand”. From the site:
The songs also sound best when listened to as a cohesive body of work. While each track stands on its own merit, â€˜Wait For Meâ€™ was recorded and arranged to be listened to from start to finish. In today’s single-driven music industry an album that holds together as a collective entity is a rarity. An album that holds itself to standards higher than commercial measures of success is even more rare.
That doesn’t come close… wow.
