MOONFACE

Since January 2010, Spencer Krug has used Moonface as a venue for home-recorded instrumental and conceptual experimentation, expanding the ideas he developed collaboratively with Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown. Releases under this moniker have come quickly, each distinct from the other. The Dreamland EP and Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I'd Hoped were conceptual excursions merging instrumental and thematic fixations. After moving from Montreal to Helsinki, Krug teamed up with the Finnish band Siinai to create a lush rock record--2012's Heartbreaking Bravery--driven by the dark despair of a breakup. Staying in Helsinki, Krug set off on yet another creative departure, driven by a rediscovery of love and a reconsideration of the Moonface persona he'd created for himself. The quietly stunning Julia with Blue Jeans On is the fourth Moonface release, bringing a degree of intimacy and self-reflection unlike anything Krug has produced to date.

Moonface: Updates From Finland & New Tour

 

Moonface & Siinai

Lots going down in the Moonface world today. First off, that picture above was sent to us a few days ago from Finland. Spencer is currently holed up in a Finnish studio recording a new Moonface record with Siinai. We haven’t heard a ton from the session but it’s safe to say you’ll be stoked.

Second, Moonface will be heading back out on tour this October in the US playing ALL THE HITS from Organ Music not Vibraphone like I’d Hoped. Joining Spencer will be world renowned nice guy/electric marimba player, Mike Bigelow. Click on through for a full list of stops.

Moonface’s Organ Music Pre-Order Download New Song, See Them on Tour

Moonface, the primary recording project of Spencer Krug (formerly of Sunset Rubdown, Frog Eyes and Wolf Parade), will release its first full-length album on August 2nd, Organ Music not Vibraphone like I’d Hoped.

Today Jagjaguwar is offering Organ Music for pre-order at SC Distribution. All pre-orders come with an instant digital download of the whole album. Click here to access Moonface at SC Distribution.

Last month we offered a download of the song “Fast Peter” from Organ Music, and today we’d also like to share a download for a Moonface song that did not seem to fit within the group. Over at the interactive Moonface fan site, http://moonface.ca/, the song “The Way You Wish You Could Live in the Storm” is available for download. Spencer describes it thus:

It’s a song that was cut from the record – an angry duck that didn’t get along with the other songs on the Organ Music LP. That is not to say it’s a bad song (though not to say it’s a good song, either), it’s just something I made that I don’t know what to do with. It’s more techno, or something, than the rest of the Organ Music LP. Less silky. But still, I thought it was worth sharing, for anyone who cares. It’s more than a pile of wet leaves. Maybe it’s something you can listen to while you do the dishes, or draw, or teach your baby to dance. So if you’re inclined, click on the link provided here and do with it what you will.

Go see Moonface on tour this summer! Dates are here.
