Moonface And Siinai My Best Human Face on LP
Solo Project from Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade & Sunset Rubdown with Backing by the Finnish Band Siinai
"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
