Genre: Sophisti-Pop This could be a perfect album If I actually cared about some of the themes in discussion here. But that's probably my only nitpick. I think the palette is grand and sumptuous. It may not have much tension, but it doesn't need any.
Produced by David Carswell & John Collins.

Then there are some songs on Kaputt that could easily be dismissed because of their whimsical "soft jazz" eruptions, but Destroyer pulls it off and creates something radiant in the sea of commercial shit. This is modern poetry like nothing else I've ever heard before and I don't give a damn if you love it or loathe it, because it was salvation for me.
Every era has a sound. When considering this, it can be easy to forget that the sound developed as a way to express something. Music heard as kitsch years later was once put forth with complete sincerity. I mention this in connection with Kaputt, the new record from Dan Bejar's Destroyer, because the first thing that strikes you about the album is its unusual sound, one for which we've all developed a cluster of associations.
