About 'Wait For Me'

Moby’s own label ‘Little Idiot’ released Moby’s new album ‘Wait For Me’ on June 29th 2009.

A resolutely DIY effort, Moby recorded the album in his home studio ("although 'studio' always seems like an overly grand word for a bunch of equipment set up in a bedroom."), drew the album artwork with a black sharpie on copy paper, asked his friends to record the vocals ("working with friends is almost always nicer than working with rock stars") and asked another friend, photographer Jessica Dimmock, to take the press photos.

In addition, friend Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, Throbbing Gristle, M83) came on board to help mix the record: "mixing the record with him was really nice, as he's creatively open to trying anything - like recording an old broken bakelite radio and running it through some broken old effects pedals to see what it would sound like. it's on the record as a :45 second long track called 'stock radio'". Moby and Thomas mixed the record using purely analog equipment in true stereo, akin to how records were mixed in the late 60's. As a result, the songs sound pretty amazing on headphones.

The songs also sound best when listened to as a cohesive body of work. While each track stands on its own merit, ‘Wait For Me’ was recorded and arranged to be listened to from start to finish. In today's single-driven music industry an album that holds together as a collective entity is a rarity. An album that holds itself to standards higher than commercial measures of success is even more rare.
