So, I first heard about this Record Store Day release a few weeks ago and thought “oh, that’ll be interesting”. Mark Lanegan is one of my favourite artists since, well, since I heard Screaming Trees’ Dust. However, I can’t claim to be a huge fan of Moby. I did, however, dig both his 100 million zillion selling Play and it’s follow-up, 18.
Anyhoo, Moby threw the track up on YouTube a few days and I checked it out this evening after work (which reminds me: Stone Gossard’s single). I actually really like it. Much like the best of Moby’s work, it has a real simple relaxed vibe and Lanegan adds some hushed, dusky vocals (similar to his work on the quieter Soulsavers numbers). A perfect match. It’s a twilight pace that moves along with a time-lapse video of some desert landscapes. Sweet. Check it out below.
