This One’s For The Dancer & This One’s For The Dancer’s Bouquet is an experimental, amorphous listen, oscillating between jazzier meditations and frenetic rock imbued with marimbas, xylophones, and steel drum. It’s made up of two distinct yet connected ideas; the music is culled from two separate projects, each with different collaborators, recorded in different studios, in different towns, in different years. The songs are sung from two completely different standpoints, blended into one long, single album. Half of the songs were written from the point of view of the Minotaur from Greek mythology, the other half written from Krug’s own perspective. Each side of the four-sided album is its own little journey, connected by a through-thread of density, of unmerciful darkness that colors every corner of the sound. In Krug’s own words:

“I never made an album under that name I was embarrassed by, and this is one of my favorites, so I may as well get out while I still can, on a personal high note to boot. Take this album as a sort of parting gift before Moonface sails into oblivion; the alter-ego’s final offering.”
