Moby releases David Lynch directed video for “Shot in the Back of the Head”

Honestly, I had literally thought that Moby had disappeared from the face of the earth until I recently saw him pop up in some of the videos of Fucked Up‘s  rendition of “Blitzkrieg Bop” at their 12 hour concert marathon while I was watching on Youtube. Really, it had been a lonnnnnng time since I’d seen him. For all I knew, the dude had taken the millions upon millions of dollars that his songs had earned from being auction off and bought a one-way rocket ride back to whatever planet it was that spawned him. The dude has always seemed a bit creepy (and overrated) to me, but that doesn’t change the fact that I have found his schtick to be increasingly interesting as I’ve grown older…

On “Shot in the Back of the Head”, I think I have finally found the Moby that I can truly enjoy. These days, Moby seems to have fallen for post-rock, and I can’t complain; “Shot in the Back of the Head” is still electronic at its core, but the lush orchestration on this song is more beautiful than anything I’ve ever heard from him and has admittedly made me a late (and unlikely) convert to Moby’s fanbase. I’ll be waiting til June 30th to see if Wait For Me is really as good as it seems it might actually be. Enjoy the video; David Lynch has made a great companion to Moby’s gorgeous audio track.
