Wolf Parade’s and Sunset Rubdown’s Spencer Krug makes provisions for his comeback tour in ten years by calling it quits with final album This One's for the Dancer & This One's for the Dancer's Bouquet. It’s under his more leftfield Moonface moniker, pitting his sumptuous voice against oddball indie rock, replete with many instruments, textures and a fair few lyrics from the point of view of the Greek mythological Minotaur. About time somebody told his story.

Spencer Krug was one-half of the songwriting force for Wolf Parade, a cosmic indie rock band who pulled 'Apologies to the Queen Mary' out of the bag. He played synth and keys back then, and his solo project as Moonface has been an experiment in making pop music with electronics and random one-off instruments. Last year, he released 'Julia With Blue Jeans On', a collection of maudlin compositions for piano and nothing else. 'City Wrecker' is that record's follow-up EP, and based on "City Wrecker", also has its fair share of piano. It documents the time Krug spent moving out of Finland.

Wolf Parade were Vancouver's banner indie rock band, crafting a melodrama in three parts through 'Apologies to the Queen Mary', 'At Mount Zoomer' and 'Expo 86'. After their dissolution, guitarist Dan Boeckner stormed through creative projects such as Operators and Handsome Furs, while synth-yelper Spencer Krug formed solo act Moonface, a place to hedge his experimental bets. The band are back together, but Krug's got another record up his sleeve: 'My Best Human Face' is the second time he's employed Krautrock band Siinai as his backing band, and you can expect them to fan the fire on Krug's usually melancholy songs.
