Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Tom Howie (10-string bass).
  • Liner Note Authors: Jimmy Vallance; Tom Howie.
  • Recording information: The Candle Factory, Brooklyn, NYC.
  • Having a sound that falls in the wistful sweet spot between New Order and James Blake, Bob Moses are actually a duo, featuring Jimmy Vallance as the man behind the group's hypnotic music while Tom Howie is primarily the vocalist, singing melodies that are wistful, woozy, and evocative of rain lightly falling on the skylight of a tasteful downtown loft. Their music recalls the rocktronica of Dirty Vegas with a restrained, indie, and post-Toro y Moi spin, but it is also worth noting that Bob Moses are deeply committed to this -- supposedly -- narrow spectrum, and are able to mine a varied and filling album out of it. Days Gone By is a more diverse alternative to their EP-collecting compilation All in All as "Tearing Me Up" comes close to snapping its fingers, rocking back and forth like a light hotstepper while offering up lyrics and a tune primed for a Sam Smith cover version. Highlight "Talk" offers a different type of melancholy, one that's icy cold and covered in a chrome-plated sheen, and if the Trentemoller style of bottomless bass and deep blues is of interest, subwoofers and tear ducts might get a workout during "Nothing at All," "Writing on the Wall," or the title track. "Too Much Is Never Enough" comes off as "Personal Jesus" at an intoxicating half-tempo, and with a handful of other Depeche Mode/Martin Gore-type touches, Days Gone By winds up a more "song-oriented" release compared to All in All, even with a handful of cuts that stretch past six minutes. Tune in, come down, and drift about because Bob Moses remain the masters of restrained bliss house. ~ David Jeffries
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly - "Singer Tommy Howie and keyboardist Jimmy Valance's lay out 10 tracks of delicately pulsing grooves, reverb-soaked synth melodies, and Howie's achingly gorgeous, nicotine-stained croon. One of the year's most underrated electronic albums."
