For The Record: Destroyer - Kaputt

Dan Bejar is a journeyman of sorts. Wandering around with The New Pornographers, the occasional Swan Lake jam sesh and of course his solo venture as, Destroyer. The dude is pretty prolific.

Despite some very solid albums from this guy (Destroyer's Rubies is classic); I never knew he was so damn smooth.

You'd never think lilting little synth and sax lines would float over Destoryer's unique vocal delivery so well. But it does; and it's really good. I didn't live in the glory haze that was the late 70s... but from what I gather, this certainly fits right in and it's a commendable step in his long list of works.

Take a listen to the album in full, thanks to the wonderful Hype Machine.

Kaputt is out now via Merge Records. Check it.
