Sunset Rubdown rolls out “Idiot Heart”, summer tour

placeholder image

    Nobody is going to argue if you exclaim, “Damn, Spencer Krug is the man.” You’ll probably find less people who will get on your case with statements along the lines of, “Damn, Spencer Krug never quits.” With eight total releases in the past four years, amongst the various outfits to which he contributes and/or fronts (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, Swan Lake, Frog Eyes), the guy isn’t spending much of his time outside of the studio. This statement only grows in magnitude with the announcement of 2009’s June 23rd scheduled release of the next Sunset Rubdown LP, Dragonslayer a few weeks ago.

    Lucky for us, the effort’s new single is available for all the world to hear in the form of the 6 minute “Idiot Heart”. You’re probably thinking, “Dammit, Spencer, only six minutes?” Just give the guy a break alright? OK? You should be happy with these six minutes of bouncy synth and hoarse singing. In fact, you are getting spoiled by this particularly awesome track, which sports some sick female backing vocals, and enough bumping beats to get you dancing or doing whatever it is you do. Let’s be honest, with this news you’re not thinking anything but, “Yes!” But I’ll stop putting words in your mouth:

    Check Out:
    “Idiot Heart”

    You’ll have to hold your horses, or Dragons (LOLz), until June 23rd for more, but Krug is taking his jams out on the town this summer. Take a look at a fresh batch of dates below:
