In the wake of last year’s scabrous Total Decay EP, Luis Vasquez’s The Soft Moon project is back with an even more savage disc.
As with his self-titled 2010 debut, Zeros sees Vasquez blending steroid-enhanced krautrock, darkwave and goth with serious flair and panache. In contrast to that record, however, Zeros sounds crisper and harsher – given some polish by producer Monte Vallier, it’s an album that favours ear-splitting intensity over subtlety.
Zeros is now available to stream in full, courtesy of The Quietus. Zeros drops on November 5 on Captured Tracks.
