Destroyer
Thief

Destroyer AKA Canadian singer/songwriter Dan Bejar used a backing band for the first time on his third album, Thief. At the time of its release in 2000 it was considered his best to date, the sound of an artist hitting his stride, and remains a jewel in his back catalogue to this day. Bejar is also a member of ...view item »

Forces From Above (DJ johnedwardscollins@gmail.com remix)

One of the stand-out tracks from Destroyer’s recent Poison Season gets remixed by somebody going by the name DJ johnedwardcollins@gmail.com, who presents a maybe slightly unexpected techno reworking of the firmly song-based original material. The Forces From Above remix is pressed to whit...view item »


Destroyer
ken

Occasional New Pornographer and Swan Lake alumnus Dan Bejar has been turning his solo project from typical indie rock fare into an inventive, '80s-studded project over the last few years, employing synth 'n' sax on the verbose Kaputt and getting serene on&n...view item »


Destroyer
My Mystery

Destroyer’s tune My Mystery gets a reworking by the catchily-monikered producer DJjohnedwardcollins@gmail.com. There is a very welcome touch of the Pet Shop Boys to the f...view item »


Destroyer
Streethawk: A Seduction

The 2001 album from Destroyer, Streethawk: A Seduction, properly reissued. Smart indie-tinged epic pop of the high quality you’d expect from Dan Bejar: indeed, this early album was one of the albums that established his remarkable reputations, containing many fan favourites. CD or LP editions avai...view item »


Destroyer
Destroyer's Rubies

The 2006 album from Destroyer, Destroyer’s Rubies, reissued by Merge. Smart indie-tinged pop of the high-quality you’d expect from Dan Bejar.

Destroyer
Poison Season

First Destroyer full-length since the very popular Kaputt way back in 2011. Poison Season mixes the song styles Destroyer is known for, from close confessional quiet numbers to bombasted, almost-70s-Springsteen-esque big tunes. All with a sophisticated and witty lyrical sensibility. Released on...view item »

Destroyer
Five Spanish Songs

Destroyer’s Dan Bejar seems bored with the English language. Therefore he has decided to sing the songs from this new EP in Spanish. I’d suggest that a lot of the point of subtle, nuanced music (such as his) is in connecting with the lyrical content. Therefore, to those of us stuck with English...view item »

Destroyer
Your Blues

Dan Bejar's indie rock eye-rolling continued with 'Your Blues', his sixth record, which wasn't a testament to how bored he was hanging about with the twee and sickeningly lovely New Pornographers, but was a wonderful bit of abandon for him. As is custom for the Destroyer project, it shows him in high-drama form, performing pantomimic songs in hi...view item »

Destroyer
Kaputt

Destroyer's Kaputt is that rare album where you know if you're going to love it in the first two minutes. With that in mind, opener “Chinatown” is a lush, gorgeous pop gem with a jazzy sway and really brilliant instrumentation that evokes a kind of mid-afternoon in paradise feel. Distant horns, slinky bass, and cavernous drums create...view item »


Destroyer
Trouble In Dreams

The last one from me this week is by Destroyer who you'd be forgiven for thinking were a metal band. That's not the case though. They're a band featuring Daniel Bejar who have their 'Trouble in Dreams' album out this week. Phil's dad occasionally visits the office and more often than not he walks into the sound of some weird psychedelic drone and...view item »

Destroyer
Destroyers Rubies

One of 2006's best records and one of America's best kept secrets..only musicians seem to enjoy this guy! Dan Bejar comes back with his 7th or 8th record (who knows!) and it's simply incredible. Think Bowie and Dylan clashing together, one's giving the decadent and romantic atmosphere, the other is writing some ...view item »
