oh the madness

Okay. Deep breath. It's time to review the musical output of Spencer Krug, otherwise known as God.

2005: Apologies to the Queen Mary (Wolf Parade)
2006: Shut Up I Am Dreaming (Sunset Rubdown)
2007: Random Spirit Lover (Sunset Rubdown)
2008: At Mount Zoomer (Wolf Parade)
2009: Dragonslayer (Sunset Rubdown)
2010: Dreamland EP (Moonface)
2010: Expo 86 (Wolf Parade)
2011: Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I'd Hoped (Moonface)
2012: Heartbreaking Bravery (Moonface, with Siinai)

If you're keeping score, there are three (3) masterpieces on that list, five (5) that are just really, really solid, and only one (1) that was kinda disappointing but it wasn't really Spencer's fault and "Cloud Shadow on the Mountain" is on it so you should own it anyway. Yep. That about covers it.

Edit: FORGOT SWAN LAKE. That band totally exists. Or existed? But that's all you really need to know.
