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 remix)

One of the stand-out tracks from Destroyer’s recent Poison Season gets remixed by somebody going by the name DJ, 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 »


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 »

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 »

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 »

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'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 »
