Spencer Krug, formerly of Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown, has announced a new EP under his Moonface moniker. City Wrecker is the latest body of work since last year’s Julia With Blue Jeans On LP, and arrives September 16 on Jagjaguwar. According to a press release, the new set of tunes marks the final dispatches from Krug’s temporary home of Helsinki, Finland. Below, check out the EP’s tracklist, as well as a crisp, black-and-white clip for its title track.
In a press release, Krug writes:
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.
