Destroy(er) it and rebuild again... for the ninth time. I am in a "punning" mood today! On January 25th, Destroyer will release their ninth LP, Kaputt on Merge Records. Dan Bejar and company will tour in support of the release with North American dates beginning in March.
Watch the video for the title track here.
Dan Bejar started Destroyer as a solo home-recording project in the early-to-mid-'90s. Over the course of his career as Destroyer, he has established himself and his band as one of the most unpredictable success stories in modern, popular music. As a songwriter, Bejar is recognized as having few peers. As a musician, he is like the court jester, waiting in the wings, poking fun at those who take themselves too seriously and skewering those who would celebrate commerce as art.
If you have not yet been exposed to Destroyer and Bejar, let's change that...now. Check out the video. Check out Kaputt. Check out a tour date. Be blown away by the above description.
