Spencer Krug‘s latest album as Moonface, Julia with Blue Jeans On is out today. For Moonface‘s newest, 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.
Also premiering today, see a new video by Spencer for the song “Barbarian”, which incorporates camcorder footage from the 1980’s of three children with some pretty sweet moves (see Spencer far right). Watch the video above or here on YouTube.

The first critics have weighed in on Julia with Blue Jeans On:
This is the true departure: an album so intimate and romantic that few in recent memory compare
– Alexander Tudor for DROWNED IN SOUND
A purified reminder of his core compositional abilities, and a more complete exploration of a side to his writing previously only glimpsed
– CHRIS BUCKLE for THE SKINNY
Julia With Blue Jeans On feels like the album Spencer Krug was always destined to create.
– Oobah Arthur Paul Butler for THE MONTREAL GAZETTE
