Published Aug 05, 2014The prolific Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, Frog Eye, Swan Lake) released Julia with Blue Jeans On, a new album from his Moonface moniker, last year. Because Krug never seems to stop working, he's already back with a planned new EP.
Called City Wrecker, the EP features five new songs from Krug. A press release indicates that these songs mark the last material Krug wrote in his temporary home in Finland.
There's also a quote from Krug, who really wants to emphasize that he didn't name his record after Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" with a lengthy statement:
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.
Jagjaguwar/Paper Bag Records will issue City Wrecker on September 16. You can check out the tracklisting below, along with a music video for the release's title track.
