soft_moon_promo2The Soft Moon share their 3rd single, Desertion, taken from their forthcoming album, Deeper. Upcoming tour dates also announced. 

Following in the shadows of The Soft Moon (2010), Total Decay EP (2011) and Zeros (2012) new full-length, Deeper is available 31 March 2015 via Captured Tracks.

While leaving the confines of his Oakland, CA home, Luis Vasquez (aka The Soft Moon) split time between Venice and Berlin to  team up with producer Maurizio Baggio to create Deeper, which just might be The Soft Moon’s best work to date.  If not their best, then certainly the most dark, melancholy and haunting.

Louder Than War - U.S. Editor. Los Angeles native and founder of Club Underground (L.A.'s longest running Post-Punk/Indie night), always looking for good music (new or old) to share/discuss.I love to read anything related to music regardless of genre so long as it is even remotely interesting. As a music fan and DJ, my interest in records started very early and my collection is filled with Indie, post-punk, new wave, northern soul, motown, glam, punk, brit pop with a splash of jazz, hip-hop and rockabilly sprinkled in.
