For Moonface‘s latest iteration, Spencer Krug has stripped down his sound to just a piano and his voice, leaving the effects, overdubs, and electronic elements out. The new album, Julia with Blue Jeans On, is Krug’s self-described love record and displays an angle of Spencer’s music not heard before.
Today we premiere the first song stream from the new album, “Everyone is Noah, Everyone is the Ark”, a slow building warning of flood waters ahead. Click HERE to listen to the song or listen ABOVE.

Per Brooklyn Vegan’s post, Spencer Krug has announced three solo shows in which he will accompany himself on piano. Two will take place in New York and one in Montreal – see details and links below.
Need a Moonface refresher do yah? Watch all the awesome music videos from his last record above – four videos total!
The new Marsha Balaeva (“Teary Eyes and Bloody Lips” / “Faraway Lightning”) directed video for Moonface’s “Headed For the Door” is quite a beauty. Shot in black and white, it is a combination of seascapes, books and perfect illustrations. Under The Radar premiered the video yesterday, along with details on how to receive the last Moonface letter in a series of three**. It includes sending your snail mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who do submit for the letter will be entered to win a copy of With Siinai: Heartbreaking Bravery, either on a CD or vinyl record. More details at Under The Radar. Watch “Headed For the Door” above.
**Fans who pre-ordered Heartbreaking Bravery received a hand-typed copy of the letter that’s read aloud in the song and then several weeks later, those same fans received a typed response to that letter. One letter is left.
Throneboogie brings us a new video for Moonface’s “I’m Not The Phoenix Yet” with some serious Buns Of Steel / Rocky vibes. Shot on a VHS-camera, it’s throwback to the days when workout videos were all the rage. Watch above or at Pitchfork TV, where it premiered earlier this morning.
