Editorial Reviews

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 waste land moving to a Motorik tic, its edges made jagged in the image of early post-punk, swathed in the moody atmosphere of vintage darkwave.

From the opening seconds of The Soft Moon's starkly lit and at times apocalyptic-sounding new album Zeros, album opener 'It Ends' sets the mood. That mood is dark, propulsive, atmospheric and addictive. It's what was playing in an S&M club somewhere in the Eastern Block in 1981. It's what was pounding the wall of a German Disco in 1979. It's what made a 20 year old Robert Smith put on eyeliner and pick up a guitar. This is the essence of Ian Curtis, Alan Vega and Peter Murphy. Sex clubs, kinky sex, black leather and dark thoughts.

Welcome to the world of The Soft Moon and Luis Vasquez.

Vasquez started The Soft Moon by himself, with the intent of creating an all-emcompassing music project. Something that would touch on sight and sound. With The Soft Moon's self-titled LP from 2010 he set the tone: a band propelled by music that created a mood. Vocals are minimal, if not completely non-existent on a good portion of the album. With Zeros, Luis Vasquez has found the balance between song and mood. After the Suicide-fueled opener 'It Ends', 'Machines' comes in like Joy Division violated by Trent Reznor's 1989 production values. Vocals hissed more than sung over a menacing electronic beat with synth stabs coming in and out. Title track 'Zeros' has a 154-era Wire vibe with Vasquez's "Ahhs" echoing in the background. Gary Numan is haunting this track as well.

The (Pain)& Pleasure Principle.

'Insides' sounds as if The Soft Moon is lost inside a cavernous synth punk gorge, waiting to be devoured by the cold and dark as sunlight fades. The Cure's 'A Hundred Years', with a dash of dark humor for good measure. 'Remember The Future' is heavy on the flanged bass and bee buzz synth. Instrumental and propulsive, it's a great soundtrack for a midnight ride on the tram.

Plenty of songwriters have been influenced by Joy Division, many of these groups took them in an electronic direction, or a punk direction, though Joy Division were neither a punk band nor an electronic band. What the Soft Moon have done is take a bit of the actual texture of Joy Division and that era, while still continuing the dance punk attitude of that group. These are not the only qualities he's toying with in their formula; he also uncoiled their sound a bit to allow for longer songs where the pop qualities dissolve into all manner of synthesizer and a sort of a feedback-ish sound like amp noise sort of. Anyway...regardless of where you place this, I think Joy Division would be proud (apparently John Foxx already is, since they collaborated); That's the biggest compliment possible for this group, in my mind.

The Soft Moon's release of Zero's is a tour de force excursion into the dream-state of music, where they've managed to take the footprints set down by the likes of Joy Division, The Cure, and other electronic dark-side visionaries and stand the genre on it's head, creating not soundscapes, but etherial dreamscapes that linger behind the curtains, drift in through a thoughtlessly neglected window, and swirl around the room ... not in a storm, but through shivers that barely register, yet manage to keep drawing you back with the sense of something subliminally recognized, while lingering just out of reach.

Soft Moon are not song based, they've stepped far beyond the need for mere words, dancing with illusionary sounds and image based chord changes, creating an immersion of undulating mid-tempo sexual offerings with shrouded muffled vocals that entice, whisper, and draw the listener in through layer after dense atmospheric layer, as if we were to get close enough to the sound, we'd receive all the answers to all the questions we could ever imagine.

The Soft Moon are both primal ... and they are the future.

If you're a fan of Joy Division, Ultravox / John Foxx, Echo and the Bunnymen, and early Cure, then you'll enjoy this CD. Check them out on Youtube and most likely you'll end up buying this pulsing / urgent wall of sound (with minimal voiceover).
