Sunset Rubdown/Wolf Parade's Spencer Krug Readies Debut As Moonface
Published Nov 20, 2009Wolf Parade offshoot Sunset Rubdown began as a Spencer Krug's solo project, but it has since evolved into a full band with a fixed five-piece line-up. Well, apparently Krug is getting that solo itch once again, as he has now revealed a new moniker: Moonface. As some fans may recall, this alias was first hinted at back in April, when Krug released a two-song picture disc called Sunset Rubdown Presents Moonface.
Well, Moonface has now evolved into a full-blown side project, with Krug releasing Dreamland EP: Marimba and Shit-Drums (yes, that's the actual name) via Jagjaguwar on January 26.
According to a vague press release, the EP will be released as a one-sided twelve-inch vinyl, and will contain approximately 20 minutes of music. The vinyl edition, as well as some digital editions, will include a dream journal that apparently inspired the music.
This is presumably the same project Krug spoke about in January when he told Stereogum that he was preparing an EP of marimba songs. At the time, Krug revealed that he had been working on the recordings for two years, adding that "I don't think it's the coolest move for my 'street cred,' but it's a beautiful sounding instrument, what can I say?"
