SESSION / Moonface Releases Paper Bag Session Of “Love the House You’re In”, Announces North American Tour Dates

For Moonface‘s latest release, 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.

Paper Bag Records filmed a simply stunning video of the new song “Love The House You’re In” live for their Sessions series. Get a sense of seeing Spencer live by watching the session above or on YouTube here.

A few weeks ago we premiered 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 on our Soundcloud.
