My Best Human Face

    Moonface is the solo project from Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown.

    “I called this thing ‘My Best Human Face’ not only because that’s one of my favorite lines on the album, but because I sometimes don’t know who I am, or if I’m as good as other people. The title speaks to the vague theme of identity confusion that is loosely woven into the songs - a reoccurring theme I only recognized after the writing was done. And so I conclude that this theme is not really important to me, or to the album. So then I plead with you: please, for the love of music, let’s not make ‘identity’ the talking point of this thing! The confusion exists for us all, sure, but that doesn’t mean we have to place it in the middle of our circle like a campfire. At end of it all, these are good time songs, meant to inspire good times in the listener. They were made joyously, with a stubborn love of music at their center. And while some of the content might be dark or sad, the memories of making these songs brings only gladness and gratitude, and it’s the construction, not the deconstruction, that I think we should celebrate.” - Spencer Krug

    Moonface are joined on ‘My Best Human Face’ by Finnish band Siinai.

    Finnish four-piece Siinai makes a triumphant return this year with psychedelia infused concept album Supermarket due out May 2014 via Splendour. The instrumental quartet released their Nordic Music Prize nominated debut Olympic Games (Splendour) to international acclaim in 2011, elevating the project beyond the thriving Helisinki expirimental-rock community. The quartet then joined forces in with the ever prolific Moonface to create the dark and moving collaboration album Heartbreaking Bravery (Jagjaguwar), tirelessly touring the album throughout Europe and North America until they decided to return underground and begin work on the new material. Conceived as a soundtrack for the supermarket nations, Siinai's Supermarket is a hypnotic odyssey through the shelves and the colorful aisles of the subconscious. Let the shopping trance begin.
