Moonface debuts new video, announces tourdates, streams new album with Siinai, and tells a few ghost stories

My sleep schedule has gone straight to hell. No matter how exhausted I think I am, somehow 3:30 AM rolls around, and I’m still wide awake, usually online, sometimes entering contests to win free records, sometimes looking at photos of charmingly arranged breakfast scenes, sometimes watching music videos.

HEY speaking of videos, Spin just premiered the Marsha Balaeva-directed video for “Teary Eyes and Bloody Lips,” a track off the upcoming Moonface record with backing band Siinai, Heartbreaking Bravery, which The A.V. Club is currently streaming. The album follows up last year’s Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I’d Hoped (TMT Review). In the video, there’s a ghost who skitters through the woods and under a bridge, a couple people who do cartwheels on a hill, and an illuminated wolf head made of paper — images weird enough to give all you lucky sleepers some pretty freaky dreams.

We reported a few weeks ago that the album will see an April 17 release via Jagjaguwar, but now it looks like Spencer Krug has also announced a string of tourdates. Cool. I’m going to nap now. Or at least try to.
