Bob Moses - Tearing Me Up

Listeners, you must have the patience of the Dalai Lama to fully appreciate this song. Why? Well it takes one minute and 40 seconds for any words to be sung. In the land of A.D.D, that's basically a whole episode of Seinfeld. But you should think of this instrumental opening as musical stretching, because when we finally set off on our jog, it's a delightful treat. Bob Moses has crafted a real slow burner here. Their guitar loop is addictive, and the vocals are ominous in the best way. I want this song to soundtrack a noir movie, specifically a sequence where the rogue but also brilliant P.I drives around his seedy town looking for suspects. Paging David Lynch. I have some final words: I think it's easy to overlook due to it's laid back nature, but this song is also very catchy. Makes me think of (and also miss) LCD Soundsystem. When someone great is gone am I right? Well Bob Moses is here to ease the pain. Merry Christmas u filthy animals.
