Moonface began in 2010 as a solo project of already incredibly busy Montreal, Canada multi-instrumentalist Spencer Krug. Krug was at that point perhaps best known as the pianist, singer, and a primary songwriter for indie bands Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown, but has also logged time with Frog Eyes, Swan Lake, Fifths of Seven, and more. The incredibly prolific songwriter used Moonface as an outlet for his dark pop and melodious experiments that didn’t fit with any of his various other more collaborative projects. The project debuted in recorded form with 2010’s Dreamland EP: Marimba and Shit-Drums on the Jagjaguwar label, followed the next year by the full-length Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I’d Hoped. Moonface’s second album, Heartbreaking Bravery, was released in 2012. Krug traveled to Finland to record the album with Helsinki band Siinai, who had toured Europe with Wolf Parade in 2009. Krug sang and played keyboards on the album, with Siinai filling out its moody compositions.
While on tour in London last fall, Moonface performed an intimate show at St. Pancras Old Church. Captured by director Phil Poole this live video of “Julia With Blue Jeans On” showcases how powerful a solo piano can be when helmed by Spencer Krug.Read More
