The Soft Moon was never intended for the public’s ears, but you found it, were drawn in by its danger, and insisted that others hear. Oakland’s Luis Vasquez began the project in order to better know his own self. He’d holed up in his apartment and let the tape roll, allowing gut and memory guide him. Those twin sherpas, however, led him to a place of darkness, claustrophobia and dread: a musical wasteland moving to a Motorik tic, its edges made jagged in the image of early post-punk, swathed in the moody atmosphere of vintage darkwave. Now, because the word has spread, the Soft Moon waxes again, returning with a most vicious, seething and focused second album: Zeros. “The Soft Moon seems distinctly of its time and place, a world in which we’re often reminded of our doomed course via out-of-reach financial barons and rogue, nation-less aggressors. That The Soft Moon carries the look so well here does the same trick as many of Goth’s best moments -- it makes oblivion seem like an enticing prospect.” – Pitchfork
