Moonface, the project of Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown) has had highs and lows over the past couple albums. However, Krug’s most recent release, Heartbreaking Bravery, is a project with Finnish act Siinai and the album title is the perfect description for this work that strives to bridge sorrow and defiance. The recent Moonface project envisions nice counterpoints between Sinnai and Krug, allowing our ears to bear witness to a more full-bodied and orchestrated experience, the result of which is Krug’s most satisfying material to date.
The album explores the quintessential them of heart tension and weighted life demands. Krug’s and Siinai spin together slowly, like a tie-dye of sounds origamiing into Krug’s stories and recollections tale of desperation and danger. This is a great release on Jagjaguwar and well worth your anticipation! http://jagjaguwar.com/artist.php?name=moonface
