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.

ONEIDA To Perform “The Wedding” With String Quartet In New York June 13 & 14

On Friday and Saturday, June 13-14, The Kitchen in New York City presents a live multimedia concert featuring a complete performance of ONEIDA’s 2005 album, “The Wedding”. Oneida will be backed by a string quintet under the direction of Brian Coughlin, who created the arrangements for the original recording, along with celebrated pianist Emily Manzo. In this evening, conceived for The Kitchen and directed by Nick Hallett, “The Wedding” is re-envisioned within the tradition of the song cycle as an abstract narrative. Multimedia art direction is provided by Mighty Robot A/V Squad, a longtime provider of Oneida’s lightshow. The work will be presented as a unique hybrid of multimedia concert and non-didactic rock opera.

Tickets can be purchased here
