Some Kind of Twisted Dream: Destroyer’s Kaputt

destroyer kaputt Some Kind of Twisted Dream: Destroyer’s Kaputt

Daniel Bejar is dangerously addictive. As pretty much the sole man behind the band Destroyer, he is, in a few words, the composer of such orchestral epic arrangements that even after the sometimes twelve-plus minutes of a song, you want to go back for more. Perhaps, that was more than a few words. More specifically, Destroyer makes you feel like you’ve been stewing in the compost pile in the back yard all day, witnessing things that you never considered beautiful or even remotely interesting until you were face to face with it… yes, that’s what Destroyer sounds like.

January 25th will see the release of Destroyer’s ninth album to date: Kaputt. In support of the album, Bejar will be doing a major tour of the US and Canada with an eight-piece orchestra… that’s what we call style. Between Destroyer and Godspeed You! Black Emperor on tour these upcoming months, everyone is about to get a taste of the intoxication of Canada’s most riveting and all-consuming bands. Go ahead, drink the Kool-Aid, it’s good for you.
