EP RELEASE // Moonface ‘City Wrecker’ Out Now Worldwide

“There are moments when the hair stands up, and it feels like being in the presence of something truly wonderful.”

- For Folks Sake

“City Wrecker is a blunt full-stop on Spencer Krug’s singer-songwriter phase…the record works perfectly as a coda to what sounded like an unusually comfortable period in Spencer’s life.”

- The Line of Best Fit // Album of the Week

Today marks the release of City Wrecker, the newest EP from Moonface. City Wrecker is the followup to 2013′s highly praised Julia With Blue Jeans On, and listeners will once again see Spencer manning the helm of a piano. This time around, you can hear Krug taking his time to sit on and dive further into the same themes, such as on the epic ten-and-a-half minute closer “Daughter of a Dove“. This is a master at work. Watch the previously released video for the track “City Wreckerabove and order the album below.
