Luis Vasquez aka The Soft Moon has shared the 90’s influenced over the top video for “Like A Father” today. To me, the video appears heavy-handed but given the message about childhood abandonment, who am I to judge? “Like A Father” was taken from the previously released album, Criminal. The Soft Moon will be touring this summer and the dates are listed below as well as the video for your edification.

‘Criminal’ is a confessional work. Through the stark lens of shame and guilt that has followed Luis Vasquez since a violent childhood growing up within the humming ambient sprawl of 80s Mojave Desert, here he documents the gut-wrenching sound of going to war with himself. Battling with his own sanity, self-hatred, insecurity, self-entitlement and grappling with the risk of these things transforming him into a person he despises, Vasquez has laid his feelings bare with this: his confession and most self-reflective work to date.
