Bob Moses’s ‘Far From The Tree’ EP expands definition of deep dance music
For the thirteenth release on Brooklyn’s own boutique Scissor and Thread, the label has released something truly special from Canadian duo Bob Moses. For those raised on classic rock and bred in an indie background, Bob Moses’s EP Far From The Tree provides a union of several well-loved genres. As emotional as it is complex, the EP ranges from the psychedelic title track (full of reverbed vocals straight out of Pink Floyd’s textbook) to the dreamy “Winter’s Song” and ominous “All I Want.” “Interloper” is the most suitable for the dance floor, but still holds itself to an air of musicianship that few producers are able to harness. The fifth track, “Stealing Fire,” reminiscent of something off The OC soundtrack of yesteryear, is a closing number demonstrative of the duo’s expertly matched union between heart-tugging indie sensibilities and electronic music’s bass-heavy fundamentals. The EP is out on September 23rd, but take a nice long listen below.
