Shot in the Back of the Head - Moby

Today we find ourselves with a lyricless song by electronica artist Moby (you might know him by the famous song Porcelain, or Extreme Ways, the theme to the Bourne movie series) called Shot in the Back of the Head, a preview of his new album Wait for Me (out June 30). I've gotten really into over the past few days. It's got an almost ambient feel to it, but it's much deeper, and frankly a good bit more melancholy and moving. It takes pulsing distortion combined with a few synthesizers and builds over three minutes, eventually reaching a climax, and quickly fading. It's really nice.

Also the music video is sort of weird. A bit trippy.
