Format: Audio CD
When you're hot you're hot. Few people could get away with knocking out a one-track, 20+ minute percussive EP under the very literal title of Marimba And ****-Drums. Fewer still could let fly five lengthy pieces as its follow-up, collating them under the umbrella of Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I'd Hoped, but, fresh from the strongest Wolf Parade album to date, Spencer Krug is in just that kind of form.

His honesty in nomenclature is refreshing too, for there is little pretence to be found here. As Moonface, stripped of band-mates and baggage, it seems that Krug is free to run with his ideas and titular organ, alone perhaps therefore in lamenting his LP's lack of vibraphone. Though undeniably a new direction for Krug, his identifiable vocal and knack for melody remain, and, combined here with his experiments in parping, double-manual decadence, the results are often quite arresting.

On the opener "Return To The Violence Of The Ocean Floor" for example, we're presented with an array of playful organ chirrups that run amok through hissing drum patterns, wistful loops and wheezy drone. Whereas, on "Loose Heart = Loose Plan" we discover a measured nod and stutter thanks to that same organ's fizzy, stepping beats. And, before dissolving into general oddball noodling, and with a vocal contribution by Camilla Wynne Ingr of another of Krug's projects (Sunset Rubdown), the light, song-driven nature of "Fast Peter" is gently pleasing.

Yet, the album comes to be defined by two mesmerising moments unlike much else in the market. So, despite being hidden behind complex depths of nearly psyche, the grandiosity of "Whale Song (Song Instead Of A Kiss)" shines with majesty.

As a percussionist I believed this would be interresting, an organ doing vibraphone music. I could not hear the organ at any time, it is like a commercial pop-disc compared to what I expected.
I give 4 stars as they play rather well, but cannot give 5 as I am to disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Repetition genius 6 Jan. 2012
By Ryan T Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The repetition and sense of looping/cyclical rhythm in this album is expertly crafted and recalls elements of Philip Glass and perhaps (very generously) Carl Stone. The sparse instrumentation furthers the atmosphere creating an overall "home-organ" sound. This album required at least a few listens before it stole my attention and fascination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and Looming 15 Mar. 2013
By Danarai - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I wasnt sure what to expect with this album. Sunset rubdown and wolf parade are two of my favorite bands and was looking forward to hearing Spencer Krug's next release. For me this CD is one of my favorites of his. The opening song "Return to the Violence of the Ocean Floor" is an epic synth based anthem with a very dark undertone to it. This album seems a bit more lonely than his past stuff and although some of the songs may appear to stretch out too long, i enjoyed ever second of it. Not sure what the deal is with the haters on this album, they need to go back to wanking it and listening to "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain"

3.0 out of 5 stars He's finally lost his mind..... 2 Oct. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really, really hope this is just the result of his being snowed in (as Spencer reports in the liner notes) during a rough winter in Montreal. The announcement of Wolf Parade's indefinite hiatus, and even worse to my fragile psyche, no word from the Sunset Rubdown camp (that I've heard), has me worried. Spencer is the best indie-music (curse me for calling it that, but everyone will understand it at least) songwriter working the past several years, and he is NOT ALLOWED to stop creating the beautifully structured/fractured songs that we all love him for (it's certainly not his openness to the public, the public being ME, about what's next). A world without Sunset Rubdown (or another pop-rock variation thereof) is unacceptable, Spencer, so let's put together something more listenable and less ego-centric than this album, because I kind-of feel like you should give my money back on this one.
