iTunes Editors' Notes

Since Wolf Parade's demise, vocalist/keyboardist Spencer Krug has cooked up a number of projects that let him stretch in a variety of directions. Here, with his project Moonface, he partners with the Finnish band Siinai. The Finns paint a musical background that Krug fleshes out with vocals and keyboards. Heartbreaking Bravery resonates with the success of an artful collaboration: Siinai’s textures range from woodsy and pastoral (in an electronic way) to robust and dramatic, and Krug’s lyrics (both obtuse and pointed, as usual) work beautifully in building the songs alongside his always-unique keyboard work. There are dance beats, anthemic post-rockers, moody and tense atmospherics, and heartache. Lots of heartache. But the best thing about Heartbreaking Bravery is that Krug is back to the comforts of actual song structures, woven from muscular and effective melodies. Yet every tune palpitates with unease, an emotional discomfort that keeps it dark and interesting. Fans longing for the days of Wolf Parade should be plenty pleased with this striking, powerful work. If in doubt, start with “Teary Eyes and Bloody Lips.”

When I feel the world is a (too) familiar place, I listen to Moonface.

The incredibly prolific songwriter used Moonface as an outlet for his dark pop and melodious experiments that didn't fit with any of his various other more collaborative...
