MOONFACE – TEARY EYES AND BLOODY LIPS (WITH SIINAI)
Okay, wait. How many bands is Spencer Krug a part of now? There’s Wolf Parade, of course. And then this new band Moonface. That makes two. But there is also Sunset Rubdown, Swan Lake, Frog Eyes, and Fifths of Seven. His life is literally music. I guess it is no surprise, since this Penticton B.C. native moved all the way across the country to Montreal to study music at Concordia University and enter the thriving scene that began to grow (only a couple of years before Arcade Fire would unveil themselves). That passion for music has always translated into his songs (especially my favourite of his – I’ll Believe In Anything), and it comes across in his new track Teary Eyes and Bloody Lips. The music charges forward like a bullet train, riding a wave of cymbals, guitars, keyboard synths, and piano. I hope Krug is happy enough with the sound he’s created to stay with this band for a couple more albums.
