This was brought about by someone pointing out that Spotify had a new “Moonface” single on his artist page…but it was by another band.
He’s usually quite self-critical so proclaiming this upcoming Moonface album to be his “best” is either exciting or a huge wind up. Some way to go to beat Julia…
Love me some SK
Yeah, I listened to that Moonface track and was wondering what was going on.
I wonder if this will finally be his Vibraphone album?
Listening to Dreamland right now, it’s astonishing how many melodies and emotions he gets into one long song with one main instrument. Genuinely think few contemporary peers can compare to his talent…and I appreciate how he’s true he’s stayed to himself over the years.
Would love an album as strong as Julia. Nice to be reminded of it as I’m gonna listen to it on the way to work tmw.
Think Daughter And The Dove is in my top ten tracks of all time
Such a track, can never listen just once.
He is a genuine musical genius
There’s a track from this on Spotify (thanks other thread!)
First impressions are great…this could be the maximalist, no-holds-barred Krug release that Ive been waiting for
The write up he gives leans in that direction.
I’m intrigued to say the least.
That was really interesting to read!
The music for the Minotaur songs was written in 2011, in my then Montreal tanning-salon-turned-loft-above-cursed-karaoke-bar home, in collaboration with my friend Michael Bigelow. A mutual love of marimba led to jamming, the jamming led to songs, and the songs led us into Breakglass studios where the great Jace Lasek helped us fully realize our rough ideas
Marimba! Lovely stuff
Mad, innit. Just what I want from him tbh. Also pleased to here he is gradually working on another solo piano album and a WP one
Could reissue it I guess?
I think there’s probably an element of…not self-sabotage exactly…but a feeling that he becomes uncomfortable with popularity. Based on interviews I would say that’s down to his own fear of complacency more than anything else.
I’m happy with how he does things. Always exciting and unexpected
This is brilliant isn’t it? The minotaur songs are grabbing most at the moment (esp Daedalus and Knossos) but it’s all pretty great.

Anyone going to the Manchester gig in May?
It’s at IABF. Man, I’m so excited about this.
When: 7.30pm on Thursday 30 May 2019 Where: International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Chorlton Mill, 3 Cambridge Street, Manchester M1 5BY We’re delighted to be presenting a rate solo show by Spencer Krug! After fifteen years of...
Does this mean he’ll just be doing new stuff? Would’ve loved to have seen him around Julia With Blue Jeans On
“Using this template, he now releases his solo work, and tours a variety of new songs as well as those from older projects, as Spencer Krug.”
I was hoping the older projects bit means we might get some Julia.
You coming? Let’s hang out…
Yeah I think I saw it on his twitter one night but haven’t spotted it promoted elsewhere tbh.
