THE SOFT MOON (SF record release party)
THE SOFT MOON (SF record release party)
The one-man project of Luis Vasquez, The Soft Moon gives the darkly hypnotic sounds of Suicide, Joy Division, Bauhaus, and Krautrock new life with a stripped-down, lo-fi approach. Vasquez is also inspired by his Afro-Cuban heritage and the wide-open spaces of the Mojave Desert where he was raised. Based in San Francisco, Vasquez released his first single, Breathe the Fire, on Captured Tracks in March 2010. That September, Parallels followed, and the Soft Moon's self-titled debut album appeared in November.

"Why They Matter: Luis Vasquez's ... project gives brooding, sultry post-punk an anxious motorik beat. The sci-fi soundscapes on the Soft Moon's eponymous full-length debut bloom with new romantic melodies that are scorched by eerie, alien noise and Vasquez's faraway howls." --Spin's 5 Bay Area Bands You Need to Know
