Destroyer - Kaputt

Release Date: 01/25/11
Genre: Indie Rock

*saxophone solo*

This is interesting.  I tried listening to Destroyer's Rubies a few years back, wasn't what i was into at the time, but when i got into The New Pornographer, it were Dan Bejar's tracks that stood out. I was expecting this album to be filled with that Canadian rock sound, but Kaputt was more in the same style of the Bay of Pigs EP.  As a whole, it works very well.  The sound is mellow 80s, slow disco with some ambient elements.  But it's still engaging during the parts where he sings the melodies.  They just sink into me.  I also love the female vocals that never takes over, but sort of softens Bejar's distinct voice. 

Favorite Songs: Chinatown, Suicide Demo For Kara Walker, Kaputt
Rating: 8.7/10
