    Following their May 30th performance in Vancouver, Wolf Parade will go into hiatus and the band’s members will return to their various side projects. Dan Boeckner has spent the last 48 hours detailing Handsome Furs’ upcoming plans, and now Spencer Krug returns to announce the full length debut of his Moonface project.

    Titled Organ Music not Vibraphone like I’d Hoped, the follow-up to last year’s Dreamland EP: Marimba and Shit-Drums will be released on August 2nd via Jagjaguwar. Though featuring just five tracks, Krug says that “Organ Music runs around 37 minutes and is dense, but in a satisfying way, I hope, like eating a small, heavy piece of cheesecake. It’s music played with an organ, organ beats, organ beeps and bloops, and some digital drums. Music based on layers and loops, the hypnotizing sound of a Leslie speaker, and the onslaught of melody.”

    One of the album tracks, “Fast Peter”, is available for stream below. Further down is the tracklist, as well as the itinerary for Moonface’s first-ever North American tour.

    Along with details about the Moonface LP, Krug also noted that he has two other projects in the works. “Later this year I will be recording with a Helsinki-based band called Siinai. I’ll also be working on new percussion recordings and performances with my friend Mike Bigelow, who is a gentle, borderline alcoholic with fast hands also currently helping me to play the Organ Music LP onstage. After this year, who knows? But I think I will stay on a zig-zag path until I fall.”
