Following 2012’s Heartbreaking Bravery, Spencer Krug (better known as Moonface) has teamed up with Siinai for new record My Best Human Face.
“I called this thing My Best Human Face not only because that’s one of my favourite lines on the album, but because I sometimes don’t know who I am, or if I’m as kind and generous and happy as other people,” Spencer explains of the new record. “The title speaks to the vague theme of identity-confusion that is loosely woven into the songs – a reoccurring theme I recognised only after the writing was done. It’s a confusion which I think exists for most of us, sure, but that doesn’t mean it has to be the campfire in the middle of our circle; we don’t have to stare into the flames. It’s simply not that important.”
“At the end of it all, these are good-time songs, meant to inspire good times in the listener,” he continues. “They were made joyously, with a stubborn love of music at their centre. 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 their construction, not deconstruction, that I want to celebrate now.”
Moonface and Siinai have shared the album’s lead single “Risto’s Riff”. Stream the track below, and find the album tracklisting beneath.
