Released earlier this year, ‘Criminal’ is The Soft Moon’s fourth studio album and spotlights the shame and guilt that has followed Luis Vasquez since a violent childhood growing up within the humming ambient sprawl of 80s Mojave Desert. “Guilt is my biggest demon and has been following me since childhood. Everything I do strengthens the narrative that I am guilty. The concept of ‘Criminal’ is a desperate attempt to find relief by both confessing to my wrongdoings and by blaming others for their wrongdoings that have affected me”, says Vasquez in the press release. On the 2nd November, German label aufnahme + weidergabe will be releasing a remix EP of the acclaimed album featuring edits from Ansome, Imperial Black Unit, Sarin, The Horrorist, SHXCXCHCXSH and more. Whilst the original album already screams Vasquez’s feelings, the remixes add another layer of intensity to the records. Our favourite is from Mexican producer and Pinkman affiliate Lokier who gives ‘Young’ an EBM workout.
