It seems like folk/blues influences songwriters are a dime-a-dozen, but lets not dump Moses Nesh into that bunch. His style is something far removed from the modern genre, but if anything, its much closer to the origin of the style. He employsornate chord work, and his vocals are often obscured by what seems to be a desire to use the voice as another instrument, another layer to his soulful sound. Don’t worry, the chorus on this number has some clarity, reinforced by a female counterpoint that provides a taste of the sublime. One can only imagine what its like to sit in the presence of Moses, but the buzzing strings in your speaker might just bring your ears closer…bring you closer to whatever it is you’re seeking, as well as Nesh. His new album No Labor Saving-Machine is out this Friday via Keeled Scales.
He’ll be playing in Austin on May 4th with Julia Lucille at the Cactus Cafe.
