Posted by Amoebite, October 2, 2013 06:36pm | Post a Comment

From humble punk beginnings to global festival headliner, Moby is easily one of the most recognizable faces in electronic music. In addition to being a platinum selling artist/producer, Moby is also a seasoned photographer and a multi-instrumentalist. He's an advocate for animal rights and a devout vegan. The guy is one cool dude.  

Moby is back with his eleventh studio album, Innocents (Mute). Following a move from New York to LosMoby Angeles, he recorded most of the instrumentation himself. He also collaborated with a list of relatively known singers including Mark Lanegan, Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, Cold Specks, Skylar Grey, and Damien Jurado. The result is a multi-layered production of both deep emotion and huge sonics. 

The album will be promoted by a three date tour in Los Angeles. Yes, just 3 live shows will make up all the touring for Innocents. Oct 2, 3 and 4 will see Moby perfoming three hour sets at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. Each show will be performed in two parts with the first half featuring songs from the new album and the second half being a "greatest hits" set.

Here's a picture of Jake Gyllenhaal spitting out sea water and a dead unicorn.
You're welcome.

The day after Thanksgiving I was returning my home to its normal layout. (We’d transformed our living room into a banquet hall; it looked good, but I still don’t know how I’m going to repair the dent in the floor left by the wind octet.) In the process of carrying the pool with live swans upstairs to the sewing room (you have to make due when living in the city) I heard a sound come from my lower back that sounded like an excerpt from a composition by Harry Partch


Yes, Christmas came early and Santa brought me sciatica. (Even though I specifically asked for a pony. With sciatica.)
