Alerting the LP masses to what the EP crowd already knows, Domino Records' All in All rounds up all the early EPs from Bob Moses, the Brooklyn house music duo who create serene, wistful, and intoxicating post-club numbers. This chilled and well-designed beauty sounds like James Blake, Trentemøller, the first New Order album, and the classic Basic Channel label slowly merged into one. There's a "band" element as well, as member Jimmy Vallance is the man behind all the blissful music, while Tom Howie handles the subdued and set-back-in-the-mix vocals. "Interloper" is the album's most "up" track, thanks to some Kraftwerk-styled runs and riffs, and on the other side of the spectrum, there's "Stealing Fire," a slow and almost beatless song with echoing guitar. The duo thrive in this narrow world, and create many different flavors, with low BPMs and delicate melodies the only constant, and in the case of late-album highlight "I Ain't Gonna Be the First to Cry," they may have invented the genre of blues-house with Howie delivering the grief and Vallance in full, slinky support. Every groove is allowed to develop and grow as the seven-minute mark is repeatedly crossed, and if there's a complaint to be made, it's that the compilation puts the acoustic mix of "Hands to Hold" right next to the regular, since that's the way it was on the original -- and DJ-aimed -- EP. It's nothing a mouse click or flick of the shuffle button can't fix, and with All in All saving you the trouble of searching out the four EPs, newcomers should consider this a welcome release. ~ David Jeffries

Having a sound that falls in the wistful sweet spot between New Order and James Blake, Bob Moses are actually a duo, featuring Jimmy Vallance as the man behind the group's hypnotic music while Tom Howie is primarily the vocalist, singing melodies that are wistful, woozy, and evocative of rain lightly falling on the skylight of a tasteful downtown loft. Their music recalls the rocktronica of Dirty Vegas with a restrained, indie, and post-Toro y Moi spin, but it is also worth noting that Bob Moses are deeply committed to this -- supposedly -- narrow spectrum, and are able to mine a varied and filling album out of it. Days Gone By is a more diverse alternative to their EP-collecting compilation All in All as "Tearing Me Up" comes close to snapping its fingers, rocking back and forth like a light hotstepper while offering up lyrics and a tune primed for a Sam Smith cover version. Highlight "Talk" offers a different type of melancholy, one that's icy cold and covered in a chrome-plated sheen, and if the Trentemøller style of bottomless bass and deep blues is of interest, subwoofers and tear ducts might get a workout during "Nothing at All," "Writing on the Wall," or the title track. "Too Much Is Never Enough" comes off as "Personal Jesus" at an intoxicating half-tempo, and with a handful of other Depeche Mode/Martin Gore-type touches, Days Gone By winds up a more "song-oriented" release compared to All in All, even with a handful of cuts that stretch past six minutes. Tune in, come down, and drift about because Bob Moses remain the masters of restrained bliss house. ~ David Jeffries
