Ever since Spencer Krug took a break from Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown, he’s been nothing if not forthcoming: the titles of Krug’s two releases as Moonface let you know exactly what to expect. Dreamland EP: marimba and shit-drums sounds like exactly that, and full-length Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I’d Hoped was created almost entirely from the titular instrument, although it’s often tweaked to sound like the analog synths he’s so fond of. What anchors Moonface to Krug’s first two projects, though, are his unmistakable voice and his inscrutable lyrics, as he weaves strange tales over stranger organ experimentations. It’ll be interesting to see how it all translates to the stage, but if it’s even a fraction as good as Wolf Parade’s live show, it’s worth checking out. ANDREW GOSPE
