Must-see: Bob Moses drop a pin at Griffith Observatory for stunning Cercle set
In recent months, Cercle and grandeur have become synonymous, and Bob Moses‘ March 22 live set at Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory only further underscored their relationality. Bathed in the gold tint of the setting Californian sun, the Canadian duo and its indie-inflected sound washed over the observatory’s lawn as the copper domes of the 27,000-square foot structure gleamed.
Across a contemplative one-hour and 34-minute stretch, Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance privileged tracklistings from their fourth long-form, 2020’s Desire. Rife with Moses material, the scenic stint made choice admissions, permitting originals from Durante and Lane 8, among a select number of other creators, to filter into the sonic frame. At stream’s end, Howie and Vallance left their instruments sitting idle to take questions, giving viewers a glimpse at the creative motivations behind their sound before Cercle closed the curtain on yet another picturesque affair.
