Boomkat Product Review:
Vancouver's Daniel Bejar might be better known as a member of Canadian indierock supergroup, The New Pornographers, but Destroyer has been his central, solo project for a decade now since his first home recordings. This latest album has already enjoyed huge critical acclaim in North America through its original release on Merge. Now, thanks to Spanish label Acuarela, not only do we Europeans get to enjoy Bejar's hyper-literate singer/songwriter witticisms, but we even get an exclusive twenty-three minute bonus track in the shape of a sort of Loscil megamix, and its typically beautiful stuff from the Kranky dronescaper. Of course, this is all just icing on the proverbial cake: the album in its original form would be enough to seduce most. Bejar's epic Dylan-esque discourses make for captivating listening based on lyrics alone, but on tracks like 'Looters' Follies' there's an uncommon musical dexterity and swagger that makes it sound akin to something David Bowie might have come out with in the '70s. Brilliant.
