With Wolf Parade on indefinite hiatus, and Sunset Rubdown appearing to be a temporary, one-off diversion, Spencer Krug has shifted his focus, at least for the time being, to his one-man, keyboard-driven experimental project Moonface. For the rather excellent new Moonface album, Heartbreaking Bravery, Krug hooked up with his old friends in the Helsinki band Siinai, who helped give his material an added texture and depth that was lacking a bit in the earlier Moonface efforts. The results are highly charged melodic explosions of sound tempered with the despair hinted at in the album's title, with Krug's rich vocals blending fluidly with the dynamic pulse added by Siinai. Hopefully, Krug brings his new collaborators with him on this tour, but either way it will be nice to hear Spencer sing his anguished songs once again. 18+
