Moonface // Dreamland EP: Marimba and Shit Drums

Got a worthwhile tweet less than an hour ago from label Jagjaguar saying:

“Santa just sent us this website…weird http://www.moonface.ca

Hoping for just a preview of Spencer Krug’s latest solo EP, Dreamland: Marimba and Shit Drums, recorded under the moniker Moonface, I was shocked to find that there was an option to download the entire album Radiohead pay-what-you-want style on the linked site (with a rabid fan base, I think Krug will be able to pull this off as well). Anyways, after you enter in your e-mail address and donation amount, about a minute later a FLAC version of the EP will magically appear in your inbox! I haven’t listened to it yet, but I’ll be sure to post my impressions later today.

Update: The download is one 20+ minute track. I don’t know if this is an indication that there is only one song on the EP or they decided not to divide it up into tracks for the download.. I am about 3 minutes into it all the way done, and I’m in utter amazement that Krug could pull off something like this. The subtitle Marimba and Shit Drums is very appropriate as that’s exactly what’s on this single-song 20+ minute “album”: a lot of marimba and an occasional entrance of trashcan drums. Incredible. I’m at a loss for words.

Since the original website is down, here is an mp3 version of the EP. When it gets back up, be sure to head over there and donate some spare change:
