Bands in the studio interview: Elliot Moss + live at Rough Trade on May 15

For some songwriters, writing good songs is simply not satisfying enough - and besides, that's not how their creative process works. These musicians feels compelled to wrap those songs in complex arrangements and original sounds, and sometimes those are actually the starting point of what then becomes a song, in a beautifully bizarre reversed music production process. In their tracks, sound design has as much importance as lyrics, chords and structure. 21 years old Elliot Moss belongs to this category, so we thought he might have something interesting to say about his creative process and the gear he loves - read the interview on our sister blog Delicious Audio. Elliot Moss will perform live at Rough Trade on May 15.

Buzz alert: NYC electro soul artist Elliot Moss plays Baby's All Right on 04.29

It's rare to find music that's incredibly intense and creative at once, maybe because musicians interested in intensity tend to stick with traditional genres, while those attracted by originality often settle for "quirky fun," or are too cerebral to let things get emotional. But 21 year old NYC songwriter Elliot Moss is getting a lot of buzz with self-produced songs that are both moody and sonically interesting. His breakout single "Slip," with its bare edginess and vocoded vocals, almost comes across as a soulful, updated version of Laurie Anderson's "O Superman," while other preview singles from the artist's upcoming album (due later in the year) showcase busier programmed landscapes, and a soul singer with seriously sulky inclinations. Check out "Best Light" below, and don't miss Elliot's upcoming show at Baby's All Right on 04.29.
