Destroyer
Have We Met

Nice sleeve art. Looks like Destroyer (aka Dan Bejar) is heading down the eccentric path on his thirteenth album which comprises of recordings culled from home brainstorming sessions and stuff recorded in his kitchen. The music was then worked on and remixed and only finished when collaborator John Collins had to go help his wife give birth. Stream of consciousness stuff from an artist refusing to rest on any kind of laurel.

Destroyer
City of Daughters

Not satisfied with being a critically acclaimed prolific singer/songwriter Dan Bejar, AKA Destroyer is also a member of Canadian band The New Pornographers along with AC Newman and Neko Case. Destroyer, however is his main focus. City Of Daughters was his second album proper, and is getting the reissue treatment to celebrate its 20th anniversary. City of Daughters marks his first leap forward, introducing more instruments and production techniques to his previous efforts which consisted of voice and acoustic guitar. Opaque red vinyl LP on Merge.

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 The New Pornographers. Orange vinyl LP on Merge.

Destroyer
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 white label vinyl by Dead Oceans.

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 Poison Season. Now he returns with ken, a record named in tribute to the original title of ballad "The Wild Ones". Dad as ever, it's likely to be a lyrical tongue-twister full of snarling wit.

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 feel of this record, partly down to the tone of the vocals and partly down to the bright summer-synth party vibes. 12” on Dead Oceans, limited to 600 copies only.

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 available, on the Merge label.

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. The (double) LP edition comes with a useful download code, and the download code comes with an exciting, exclusive bonus track, the 24-minute ‘Loscil’s Rubies’.

Destroyer
This Night

The 2002 album from Destroyer, This Night, properly reissued on vinyl by Merge after a Record Store Day exclusive release a few years ago. Smart indie-tinged epic pop of the high quality you’d expect from Dan Bejar. CD or double vinyl LP editions available, the LP coming with  a handy download code.

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 the Dead Oceans label.

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 his Bowie-inflected vocal snarl.
