Spencer Krug is an odd fellow. He’s in like 5 bands including Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, Swan Lake, Fifths of Seven and Frog Eyes and now has started his own side project called Moonface. He’ll be releasing an EP through Jagjaguwar on January 26 but until then he’s giving away an “EP” of sorts called Dreamland EP: Marimba and Shit-drums. Like it sounds, the only instruments on the album are marimba and shitty sounding drums, like wet drums you’d hear in a bad 80’s song.
Did I mention the song is like 20 minutes long? 20 minutes of miramba, Spencer’s vocals and shitty drums. I know, this sounds like it can’t be good, but you know what, the download is free and you should try it anyway. I’ve listened to it like 10 times now, including while I was walking around doing my errands, and it’s really awesome. I’m really excited for the whole album, I just hope it doesn’t get too weird.
