Moonface - Headed For The Door
Jagjaguwar kindly comped me a subscription to their DripFM service, which serves up a consistent dose of great albums. This month’s release is 2011’s Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I’d Hoped from Moonface. I’m not sure why they didn’t release his 2012 album, With Siinai: Heartbreaking Bravery, but they didn’t.
You’ll recognize Moonface as the voice of Sunset Rubdown, Wolf Parade, and sometimes Frog Eyes and Swan Lake — a Canadian gentleman by the name of Spencer Krug. There are catchier, more straightforward rock tunes on this album, like “Teary Eyes and Bloody Lips,” but I love the drone jams like this one. Moonface creates amazing spaces with repetition.
