Last year Jagjaguwar released a twenty-minute marimba piece by Spencer Krug under the moniker “Moonface.” It was called the Dreamland EP: marimba and shit-drums, and it was sold as a 12″ and under a pay-what-you-want system via the interactive Moonface site in which fans could contribute and read dream submissions. Jagjaguwar will release Moonface’s first full record, Organ Music not Vibraphone like I’d Hoped, on August 2nd, 2011.
Moonface’s first tour is coming in July. Check out our page for all the dates. After the jump, read a message from Spencer Krug about the new record!
Today we received what is probably my favorite piece of fanmail for Spencer Krug of all time. Included in the email was a 500-word essay that Joe S., age 14 of Minnesota, wrote in order to win a Spencer-themed 1″ button. Joe’s opinions contained herein are not necessarily representative of Jagjaguwar or its employees. There is one thing we can both agree on, though, and that is that Spencer Krug is Awesome.

Spencer Krug, will be releasing his new one-track EP under the moniker of Moonface come January 26th. The release will be available in the vinyl format as well as through digital distribution outlets.
For those who can’t wait, Spencer has created a website where you can download the 20 minute track. If you head over to www.moonface.ca you can get a FLAC or MP3 of the Dreamland EP: marimba and shit-drums. While you’re there, feel free to make a donation. You can also scratch that voyeuristic itch and read a selection of Spencer’s dreams, on which the music was based, or get all exhibitionist up in this shit and post your own dreams.
