- Feel by The Soft Moon
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 one part post-electronica navel gaze, his tracks have an eerie late night feel but almost come across as sketches.
‘Feel’ is the most realised thing I’ve heard him come up with, beginning with a phased Joy Division bassline, the vocals are much higher in the mix than previous, outlining some obvious tough times for the lad. As the track builds the repeated phrase/question ‘why are we alive?’ drifts through the mix breaking only for a thin The Cure like guitar ‘solo’.
Its enormously effective, you get lost in its dark atmospheres to the point that you suddenly think you are on 1980’s Manchester side streets, blown along on Tony Wilson’s raincoat. On the flip there’s a dark blissed out track based around a fizzing synth and drum machine, perfectly ok but its the A side you’ll need this for.
