Moby’s new album, Wait For Me, fleshes another side of Moby’s creative side. He is a constant doodler of a little character simply called, Little Idiot. Moby’s album is a bit on the light side this time around. His love for independent and obscure comic books are the basis of this animated interview of his character Little Idiot who happens to be voiced by Moby and is Moby at the same time. The character called dog interviews him about the making of his album in his two room apartment in New York City. This album is for a rainy day atmosphere. The multi-talented artist is in full control of the artistic look of all aspects of his recent work and seems to enjoy the freedom of creativity within the confines of his own home unlike most artists who travel to obscure studios to get away from everything. The homebody Moby is right at home within his own four walls and ready to release his art upon the world.
This is the new way for many in the recording industry who want to protect their own material. Beck and others have joined the ranks of self produced and more intimate products for the fans. Mainstream listeners might not be au courant of the latest recordings but die hard fans are well aware of the material and religiously follow it on the net.
