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.
