Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

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. Darker still was the Total Decay EP, which arrived in late October 2011. Vasquez wrote many of the songs that ended up on the Soft Moon's second album, Zeros, while on the road, and enlisted the help of engineer/producer Monte Vallier to turn them into the streamlined tracks that appeared upon the album's October 2012 release.
