Moby, Innocents: Album Review

Richard Melville Hall (aka Moby) is back with his 11th album and continues his deft broad stroke artistry utilizing electronic music as the backdrop for his tales.  For this album he’s enlisted a some interesting choices for guest vocals.  Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, QOTSA), Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips) and Cold Specks are just a few of the names to drop by. He has a script and sticks to it.  The album opens with an echoed/syncopated set of notes that […]

Rejoining Team Moby for “Destroyed”

The more I read about Moby’s Destroyed project, the more interested I am in it. The album, which has a May 17th release date, will be accompanied by a book of photographs Moby took while touring the world.

You might wanna check […]
