The Soft Moon vs. John Foxx & The Maths: "Evidence"

Though I've yet to hear a proper album from The Soft Moon, (consider them shameful inclusions getting way too much heat on the backburner), every song I've listened to has been gothic, post-punk gold and apparently a new album will be out titled, Zeros. This collaborative single, "Evidence," sees Soft Moon Luis Vasquez with John Foxx & The Maths taking on an electronic-based and somewhat industrial approach.

THE SOFT MOON TALKS FORTHCOMING LP WITH STEREOGUM 
SHARES JOHN FOXX AND THE MATHS COLLABORATION "EVIDENCE" 
After a pair of lauded releases in 2010's self-titled LP and 2011's Total Decay EP, The Soft Moon are proud to announce their forthcoming second LP, Zeros, due this fall for the ever-reliable Captured Tracks. Though still a ways off on the horizon, The Soft Moon mastermind Luis Vasquez took time to talk to Stereogum about the new record in today's Progress Report. For more about the recording process and what to expect from the next album, read the piece below.

Additionally, The Soft Moon recently released a new song via Twitter that was created in collaboration with legendary electronic musician John Foxx and his new band The Maths. The track "Evidence" was born naturally out of the two artists' mutual appreciation for one another. Speaking with Artrocker last year, Luis had this to say of John Foxx's influence on his own music,"Foxx's Metamatic album is what led me to discover the Arp Odyssey, the most crucial instrument in my collection, and the key synthesizer used in creating my unique sound. So, that album is very important to me and what I do." With regard to the collaboration, John Foxx said, "The Soft Moon are where minimalism maximises into a new universe of possibilities. It's an absolute joy for us to work with them.'' This momentous collaboration will be memorialized with a one-sided 7" featuring "Evidence" due June 26th from Captured Tracks. Listen to "Evidence", the result of their collective labor below now, and prepare yourself for Zeros.
