Moby - Wait for MeMoby, a.k.a. Richard Melville Hall, is the vegan prince of techno, a man who sold millions of CDs with his rich, gospel-inflected electronica. Here, the great-great-great nephew of Moby Dick’s Herman Melville eschews high-tech studio wizardry in favor of an understated, made-in-the-bedroom affair. The result is dark and strangely compelling. The moody “A Seated Night” sounds like an outtake from David Lynch’s surreal TV classic Twin Peaks, while “Pale Horses” is Moby’s mournful lament on lost loved ones.
