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.

ALBUM ANNOUNCEMENT // The Cave Singers Set to Release ‘Naomi’ in March 2013, First Track Available for Streaming

Next year continues to get better and better! The Cave Singers announce their fourth full-length, Naomi, set for release on March 5, 2013. Naomi came to be over a span of ten months and the boys headed into the studio to lay down the tracks in one, with Seattle producer Phil Ek adding the final touches. The core trio of Pete, Derek and Marty is joined by long time friend Morgan Henderson, who you’ll recognize from Blood Brothers and Fleet Foxes.

It’s an album full of love and suffering, surrender and redemption: the messy stuff of life. When premiering the first single this morning,KEXP writes “The ‘Singers have never had such swagger!” Stream “Have to Pretend” above!
