Destroyer

Media Title

Vancouver’s Dan Bejar is going on two decades of writing ramshackle, whimsical indie rock under the nom de guerre Destroyer. Over the span of nine albums, plus a few EPs, the sometimes-collaborator of the New Pornographers has written slightly odd, often atonal, tunes that are uplifting and full of vim and vigor. With his inimitable voice—an earnest, gravelly, quasi-falsetto—omnipresent, Bejar has morphed from the noise-rock/folk-troubadour of his early days to shoegaze-inspired Happy Mondays dance beats to the new-age and easy-listening influences found on his most recent album, 2011’s Kaput. Bejar’s verbose lyrics, full of vignettes and non sequitors, tie together his guitar- and key-driven melodies and dynamic vocal stylings. -Katherine Silkaitis
