The Soft Moon = The KVB + Tropic Of Cancer
 
It is early in the year, but I already know that this is a major contender for my favorite album of 2015! Deeper is treading on new ground; the songs still sound like Soft Moon but are a bit more experimental with a broader range of sounds than the standard Joy Division–type bass and instrumentation associated with the project. This recording is more vocal-heavy than previous efforts, and Luis Vasquez singing on “Wasting” kind of sounds like Tears for Fears, but that’s not really a bad thing. It was a good move for Vasquez to take advantage of his voice and expand the sound for this record. Deeper is superb and highly recommended. (Urban: 04.22) –Mort Kilgore
