The Soft Moon’s Luis Vasquez didn’t plan on remaining a solo artist, but upon moving to Venice, Italy, his isolation forced him, well, Deeper inside himself. The Soft Moon’s third album sounds exactly like what it is: an angst-ridden work of inner turmoil that does everything it can to fight its way out of the corners. The single “Black” is merely an introduction that serves as a warning. The follow-up tracks—“Black,” “Far,” “Wasting”—deliver on the eerie promise and create beautiful but intensely draining soundscapes that make The Cure’s Pornography and Nine Inch Nails' The Downward Spiral feel like mild introspections by comparison.
