Today we review Spencer Krug’s fourth album under the moniker Moonface, Julie with Blue Jeans On. Released by Jagjaguwar on October 29th, the record offers a unique addition to extensive discography of Krug, who has been in many bands such as Wolf Parade, Swan Lake, Sunset Rubdown, and more. Julia with Blue Jeans On diverges substantially from his past endeavors, it is a stripped down album that features only piano and vocals. We’re not entirely convinced.
