Luis Vasquez-The Soft Moon

January 12, 2013 @ 9:30 pm - 12:00 am


One-man project of Luis Vasquez, The Soft Moon brings new life to the darkly hypnotic sounds of dark-wave precursors like SUICIDE, JOY DIVISION and BAUHAUS with a stripped-down, lo-fi approach. Similarly inspired by his Afro-Cuban heritage and the wide-open space of the Mojave Desert where he was raised, THE SOFT MOON’s evolution over the past few years has seen a trio of excellent releases on the esteemed Captured Tracks. The most recent, 2012’s Zeros is a complete immersion in rumbling, eerie strangeness that continues the path of darkness, claustrophobia and dread VASQUEZ has been following, a musical wasteland marred by jagged post-punk, atmospheric dark wave and a Motorik tic that gets bodies jerking uncontrollably when witnessed live.
