In line with a lengthy track record of top-notch annual programming, Outside Lands‘ 2019 lineup is a mixed bag of musical talent that offers something for all types of music lover. The San Francisco affair’s collection of headliners is rife with artists who are in the midst of career hot streaks. Recent multiple Grammy Award-winning artist Kacey Musgraves tops the lineup with Anderson .Paak, Childish Gambino, and Flume. Attendees can presumably expect Flume to use his Outside Lands slot as a launchpad for new music, given his release of mixtape, Hi, This is Flume, and his ensuing announcement that more fresh material would soon follow. Paul Simon, Twenty One Pilots, The Lumineers, Blink-182, Kygo, Leon Bridges, and Lil Wayne round out the remaining headliners.

Outside Lands’ 2019 lineup represents the electronic genre in its broad scope. RL Grime, San Holo, Big Wild, DJ Koze, Justin Martin, Shallou, and Bob Moses appear among the many producers tapped to perform at the festival. Moreover, DJ Koze, Bay Area-natives Luttrell and Justin Martin, and Flying Lotus‘ lauded 3D show all appear on this year’s billing too. Outside Lands will descend upon San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park from August 9-11. GA and VIP passes to the event will go on-sale on March 28 at 10 AM PT, and can be purchased, here.

Premiere: Bob Moses gives a gritty glimpse of life on tour in ‘Back Down’ music video [Watch]Bob Moses Back Down Video Premiere

With a brilliantly evocative new album titled Battle Lines in tow, Bob Moses have brought their latest era to cities across North America this fall. Their Battle Lines Tour is set to wrap after one final show November 16 in Los Angeles, following months of international touring. “Back Down,” a breakaway hit from the new LP, has quickly become a streaming and crowd favorite–and the genre blending duo were kind enough to premiere the song’s official music video here at Dancing Astronaut.

The music video is an intimate glimpse into the Bob Moses tour experience,  with various black-and-white scenes from the road contrasting beautifully with the bright red-orange lights of the stage. Behind-the-scenes footage ranging from hotel room jams to views from the tour bus are sprinkled between shots of Bob Moses tearing through a spirited live performance. Almost imperceptibly, black and white and full color shots converge on the stage for the track’s climax. The duo gave some insight into the music video’s documentary-esque origins:

“We spent a while thinking about what we wanted the ‘Back Down’ video to be. We wanted to be in it which inevitably ended up meaning that the video came to us. It’s a few days in our lives so that means on the road, in the bus, and onstage. No middle of the night truck stops made the final cut.  It was filmed at the very beginning of our most recent US tour so they caught us performing the song for our very first times.   We got to shoot some of this in our hometown of Vancouver too which was special.”

The marvelous evolution of Bob Moses continues with sophomore LP ‘Battle Lines’

The marvelous evolution of Bob Moses continues with sophomore LP ‘Battle Lines’Bob Moses Battle Lines Album Review 1

At it’s best, dance music has championed the misfits, and been a home for the one-of-a-kinds. When this happens, a club can become a safe haven and temple for anyone willing to embrace others as they embrace themselves. But what happens when it isn’t the outside world that can’t contain an idea, but the club itself? The answer, it seems, is Bob Moses. Originally honed in New York’s effervescent music world, the now LA-based duo were warehouse warriors with a destiny that sets them apart from every indie rock act and dance DJ in rotation. The brainchild of an Ultra Records trance savant and a rock band bassist, Bob Moses has aspirations beyond every pre-made path; the weepy indie scene needs more kick drum, and the fist pumping dance hoards need to be subject to more songwriting with soul. It’s from this thrilling, precarious position that the duo deliver their second full-length studio effort, Battle Lines.

The album begins with a bang, as the towering vocal harmonies of “Heaven Only Knows” leads to a thundering four-to-the-floor romp. Despite grungy guitar work woven throughout the track, the song has an undeniable royalty to it that belies the track’s tellingly conflicted lyrics. As the LP flows forward, it’s clear the group is presenting their unique tastes, and nothing else. It’s a lucky thing; the compositions range from the shimmering cool of album’s title track to the rattling thrum of “The Only Thing We Know.” It doesn’t take long to realize this latest incarnation of Bob Moses has shed another layer of dance floor disco. In its place is an extra pour of smoke and fuzz that brings the duo deeper into indie rock territory than ever before — at least in terms of texture and instrumentation.

Beneath the surface is a group feeling freed to try on every song structure and arrangement inspiration that grasps their interest. The record’s final complexion reveals a lot about what the studio sessions were probably like. Guitar lines and echoing piano power Oasis-esque sensibilities on “Selling Me Sympathy,” while “Nothing But You” drenches Maroon 5 pop stylings in saturation and warmth. Dig deeper, and there are those uniquely effortless dance roots that put the group’s scene-straddling abilities in the spotlight. “Listen to Me” and “Enough to Believe” are atmospheric deep house in indie rock clothing, and “Heaven Only Knows” possesses a gritty stomp that would sound right at home on a more recent Justice record. In less capable hands, the collection of ideas would border on chaos. Ever the masters at toeing the genre line, Bob Moses cover the entire project in two bulletproof ingredients – sonic cohesion, and a supreme confidence and command of musical elements that come from the natural maturation of an artistic journey. The various inspirations push and pull the listener back and forth, but the space Bob Moses’s music lives in remains the same. The feat is duplicated in rich, bittersweet, and conflicted lyrics. They speak of loss, doubt, remorse and ultimately resolution — consider, “Back Down” begins with the phrase “Caught in the tide of our own divide.” If Battle Lines represents a group with a foot in multiple worlds, Bob Moses should hopefully aim to ride that tide right into whatever fascinating canvas of expression they draw up next.

Bob Moses captivates with new indie electronica single, ‘Enough To Believe’

Bob Moses captivates with new indie electronica single, ‘Enough To Believe’Bob Moses Enough To Believe Single

Bob Moses have released a dreamy sonic landscape called “Enough To Believe,” coming as the latest single from their upcoming Battle Lines LP. The Canadian indie electronic duo have crafted a sound combining smokey rock attitude, soundtrack-worthy ambiance, and subtle dance floor sensibility. The style has earned them slots at major festivals from Coachella to Glastonbury, and “Enough To Believe” will certainly join their rare catalogue of records that can appeal to both indie rock and dance music crowds.

The downtempo meditation is a cloud of soft strings and glittering bells, with a deep kick keeping four-to-the-floor pace. The track wanders  minimalist territory at points, but waves of echoes and ambient swells flood in quickly to fill the space. Gorgeous vocals and rattling percussion complete the single, which teases an engaging and fully matured vision from the duo coming on their sophomore LP. Bob Moses will head out on a 30-date North American tour this fall to support Battle Lines‘ September 14 release, so grab those tickets fast to get even deeper in the feels.

Canadian indie electronic duo commonly mis-referred-to as a singular entity, Bob Moses, has announced they have another album, Battle Lines in arsenal — set for release Sept. 14. This will be the Grammy-nominated “Tearing Me Up” remixers’ second album on Domino Recording, following 2015’s Days Gone By, which housed their smash success, “Tearing Me Up,” and their compilation album, All In All of the same year.

The announcement comes with an atmospheric, but steadfast new track, “Back Down,” and flame-laden, accompanying video. This is the second puzzle piece BM has shared from the forthcoming album, the first of which was “Heaven Only Knows,” a much shadowier, percussion-heavy offering.

2. Battle Lines
3. Back Down
4. Eye For An Eye
5. The Only Thing We Know
6. Nothing But You
7. Enough To Believe
