Spencer Krug deserves the most prolific Canadian in music award, continuously releasing music under his Moonface moniker since his split with Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown. Today, the singer/songwriter/instrumentalist announced his followup to last year's Julia with Blue Jeans On with City Wrecker EP, of which he's also shared the title track, a somber, yet uplifting ballad. Krug had some interesting observations about the album, which you can read below:
"City Wrecker is the title track of the EP. I wrote it before Miley Cyrus released “Wrecking Ball”, but I cannot prove it. Oh well. In describing the song (and maybe the whole EP) I would say it's the aesthetic opposite of “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus, which is not to say that's a good thing or a bad thing, just an apple for you to hold up beside your orange. Regardless of all that, my friend Eetu, who recorded this EP, still likes to call the song “Wrecking Ball” and to sometimes call me Miley, but that's okay cuz we're buddies."
