This one's important for fans of plaintive instrumental rock action and neo-classical hibernation: pianist David Moore leads the band Bing & Ruth into making minimalist pieces that meditate for a seemingly endless time. 'Tomorrow Was the Golden Age' is focused around his resounding piano performance, much in the fashion of Steve Reich or Dustin O'Hallaran. 'Tomorrow Was the Golden Age' is that good kind of ambient vibe: modest, unobtrusive, but forceful at the same time.

Donning my ears this afternoon is a cracking little classical piano album from pianist David Moore under his guise of Bing And Ruth. Released on the independent label RVNG Int. this really soothed my throbbing head when it arrived here (a stinking cold if you’re interested!) with it’s beautiful flourishes of drifting piano and tickles of ambient noise, ‘Tomorrow Was A Golden Age’ has all the elements of a great modern neo-classical record very similar to artists like Nils Frahm and Craig Armstrong but with a post-rock like melodicism.
It almost has the feel of a film soundtrack but without any intermittent filler moments, every track paints its own pretty picture some of which are dark and brooding but most feel like beautiful love songs stripped back to their bare bones leaving behind nothing but pure emotion. Moore draws on simple classical elements sprinkled with a very modern form of songwriting so it doesn’t feel too long and drawn out, what is produced is an album of heartbreaking ambience that oozes emotion from every note played.
