I recently got Streethawk. The Bad Arts is f*cking amazing. I don't like the album as much as Rubies and Kaputt but I still really enjoy it. Downloading This Night right now.

I think I'm starting to get a cobbleresque addiction of Destroyer.

You got the spirit, don't lose the feeling.

Your Blues tonight.

I have to admit I was largely bored by it. The MIDI sounds, and the acoustic guitar, for much of the album, just doesn't provide much to get excited about.

My favourite tracks were The Fox and the Hound and Certain Things You Oughta Know, because both were pretty successful in creating moods, I think. The former has this sort of dreaded marching quality to it and the latter combines synth blasts well with acoustic guitar. Reminds me a bit of The Bewlay Brothers.

It's Gonna Take An Aeroplane, An Actor's Revenge, Notorious Lightning and The Music Lovers were also good.

I want to ask - has anyone been able to make sense of any of Bejar's lyrics? I have not.

Anyone who wants to add their thoughts on Your Blues please do so!!!

And, officially, I have the most posts in this thread.

I agree on Your Blues. It's my least favorite Destroyer album, at least of what I've heard. It all feels kinda sterile to me. BUT, don't miss the Notorious Lightning And Other Works EP! Bejar retools songs off Your Blues, several with the amps and swagger cranked. "The Music Lovers" becomes epic. And cover art so ugly it's awesome. I'm still kicking myself for not buying the tour shirt with this art when I first saw them.

I'll definitely be checking it out, pretty sure I'm gonna be a completist for Destroyer. That's a cool shirt man, very jealous you got to see them as I don't think they'll ever come here!

Looks like Merge is releasing Destroyer's Rubies in a red vinyl double LP for RSD, including a new remixed track.

Yes please.

I've got my plane ticket to America booked just to buy that record

I'm listening to Rubies right now, in fact. I feel it too has become one of my all-time favourites. Incredible stuff.

Listening to the Rubies vinyl reissue. Fucking fuck yes. Great album, great sound, just a really wonderful experience all around.

Haven't gotten to the random 23 minute track yet, I'll report back.

OK, so it was basically a 23 minute ambient piece. Inessential, but pleasant. The worst thing is that it fit horribly; I wish it were on side 4 instead of side 3, but I mean, I just have to flip it around. Easy enough fix.

"Pleasant" is about as generous I'd be. It's not even Destroyer, really. Loscil is the pseudonym of Scott Morgan, who is an ambient/electronic producer - and drummer for Destroyer. I was kinda hoping it'd be like The Laziest River, which actually works after Bay of Pigs, but it doesn't match Rubies in the slightest.

I think, were we to do another "best albums" thing, I'd put both Rubies and Kaputt in my top 20. In all seriousness. I love them both so much.

In Painter in Your Pocket, I always thought that line was "...like a willow off the arm of yet another visionary / prophetess East Van. punk".

But the official lyrics say "profitous".

I'd whinge, but Bejar's lyrics never make much sense. "Inutterable" is not a word either.

Actually, it kinda makes more sense. "Prophetess" would imply the girl, the subject, is a lesbian.

I'm listening to Your Blues now... It's Gonna Take An Airplane is already a favourite of mine. The hooks in that song are so good. Sum-mery...

Definitely my least favourite of the ones I've heard.

Listen to This Night. I've heard that one a few times and I still can't remember anything off of it. Except for the awesome title track.

Serious question - how can you hear European Oils and not immediately fall helplessly in love?
