THE SOFT MOON

'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. “Guilt is my biggest demon and has been following me since childhood. Everything I do strengthens the narrative that I am guilty” Vasquez reflects. “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.”

HIDE

HIDE WAS BIRTHED FROM CHICAGO’S DIY SCENE IN 2014. HEATHER GABEL AND SETH SHER MAKE UP THIS ELECTRONIC, SAMPLE BASED, POST-INDUSTRIAL DUO. HAUNTING VOCALS, THROBBING SUB-BASS AND TRANCE INDUCING DRONES ROUND OUT A SOUND THAT BOTH PUNISHES AND EMPOWERS.
