The Soft Moon
The Soft Moon

Well I never. One of those numerous acts on the Captured Tracks imprint has made quite a stunning album here. All the long-players on this relatively young label so far have been pretty damn fine, but there's summat about Luis Vasquez's dystopian motorik doom pop that is decidedly remarkable. Although there are percussive elements that recall Jo...view item »

The Soft Moon
Criminal

Luis Vasquez is angry. His latest album as The Soft Moon is Criminal, named for those that have hurt him, including himself. The songs are an aptly furious mixture of krautrock grooves, indie rock melodies, all lathered in so much distortion that this record could only come from Sacred Bones. Av...view item »

The Soft Moon
Zeros

Sounding somewhat like an unearthing of lots of Bauhaus and Killing Joke demos, The Soft Moon is actually Oakland resident Luis Vasquez who, from the evidence of this, spe...view item »

The Soft Moon
Deeper

The reclusive tones of The Soft Moon betray its humble origins: the project was never meant to be heard. But private press doesn't remain private for long, in most cases, and Luis Vasquez soon shared his melancholic wasteland of cold synth and post-punk with the world. Deeper is what it says: another...view item »

The Soft Moon
Feel

Gosh I love this. This is the best thing I’ve heard from Luis Vasquez’s spindly, gothy post punk project. He has a knack of producing music that has that rain-lashed, raincoated early 80’s sound down pat. One part Joy Division, one part Southern Death Cult...view item »

The Soft Moon
Total Decay EP

I can't believe I've got this guy again, he's by far one of the most exciting artists to ever land on Captured Tracks and now you've a fresh EP opening with a hefty chunk of intense, driving motorik/electronic nu-goth to contend with. I think it's that distinctive sound he's hit upon th...view item »

The Soft Moon
Parallels

Liking this 'Parallels' tune a lot. Can't say I've been that impressed with The Soft Moon on previous listens but they've pulled out the krautrock vibes for this cheeky 45 and it totally suits them. Repetitive uptempo drums play off a semi-gothic sounding, almost Joy Division-esque bassline drenched in chorus effects and propped up by ghostly vo...view item »

The Soft Moon
Breathe The Fire

The Soft Moon have a sound that is quite hard to pin down. Taut, whispery vocals, a drum machine that would get Andrew Eldritch moist, and an almost Joy Division bass hook. I guess you could say its dark gothic pop, but I would have to kill you. The flipside offers much of the same, but maybe with more atmospherics and a huge swirling production. B...view item »
