His weedy fucking al stewart voice.

all three tracks from this so far have been great. i'm expecting this to be one of my very favourite Destroyer records, up there with Kaputt

fuck these singles are so good. i like all the videos too.
ken and poison season never clicked with me, worth going back to?

i really like poison season, it's one of his best
ken is decent but a little more inconsistent and suffers from not having his fantastic band from kaputt and poison season around. the live versions of most of the tracks are significantly better

I'm loving the new songs! Some lyrics on instagram appeared for an unreleased track from 2009, which is colloquially known as 'It Aint Easy Being Baby' so I'm wondering if that one made it with a different title. Do check out Poison Season and ken when you can, they're both great albums imo. There's a new interview with Bejar on pitchfork also.

Cue Synthetizer is such an earworm. It keeps getting stuck in my head, particularly those guitar parts.

“No I don’t hope to”

Yeah I think "Cue Synthesiser" is the best yet.

That Pitchfork profile was great, I didn’t know any of that stuff about Bejar working with David Berman on that lost record.

a few more pretty interesting interviews

quite a bit about the production choices in this Quietus interview https://thequietus.com/articles/27717-destroyer-dan-bejar-interview-have-we-met-2020

album is very very good, probably second only to Kaputt in his catalogue. really gorgeous soundscapes
― ufo, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 19:14 (yesterday) link
this is another great piece
― ufo, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 19:26 (yesterday) link
i liked that pitchfork piece but couldn't help but note that there's a mark's work warehouse in the kingsgate mall where you could definitely get green socks
