Bob Moses

Days Gone By 2xLP

Occupying the fertile ground between organic band land and an all-electronic production project, Bob Moses draw on the two poles to vividly resonate across both. A duo with an individual name, Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallanceís musical endeavor plays with this kind of duality all over Days Gone By. The albumís potency in solitude marks it out as a debut worthy of deeper scrutiny. A sound palette that combines the elegantly icy with an indelibly human touch,its Cologne techno rhythms in the bottom, the elegant otherly distance of Detroit in the middle, and an unmistakably earthly, almost jazzy textures in the top end, anchored by Howieís softly suggestive voice that doesnít dominate, but instead plays out as another instrument in an alluring mix.
 
Alternating between brooding dancefloor burners and moments of reflective, downbeat repose, Days Gone By is a record thatís not in a rush to get to its destination, preferring to subtly, slowly seduce rather than sway and swagger into submission, weaving a rich spectrum of sensation over the course of its ten tracks.
