    Presenting the second installment from The Soft Moon’s Room 205 visit featuring a performance of “When It’s Over” from the debut album The Soft Moon.

    According to Luis Vasquez, the song was recorded in the Mojave Desert as an untitled track in 1999 and was the starter seed for the entire Soft Moon project. Airy echoes and trailing vocals abound in this sonic meditation on impending doom.

    The Soft Moon is a San Francisco-based neo-post-punk band influenced by early Bay Area avant-gardists such as Chrome, Units and Minimal Man. Their cataclysmic delivery makes listeners contemplate the deeper aspects of the primal self through weeping guitar leads, cutting bass lines, haunting vocals, icy synths and motorik beats. Mix in the mind-bending visuals of band member Ron Robinson and we have one hell of a Room 205 episode.

    BIO
    Raised under the burning sun of the Mojave desert, Luis Vasquez channels both his punk upbringing and Afro-Cuban heritage to sculpt dystopian soundscapes for a new generation of torn romantics. Vasquez founded The Soft Moon in 2009 as a means to explore music on a more visceral level, releasing the singles "Breathe the Fire" and "Parallels" on the Captured Tracks label. Shortly thereafter he brought on bassist Justin Anastasi, drum machine & synth programmer Damon Way and visual artist Ron Robinson. The debut LP, The Soft Moon, continues Vasquez's deeply personal journey into primal expression and spontaneous creation.
