You could say the same for Painter In Your Pocket. One of the best pop songs I've ever heard.

Anyway here's a ranking of the Destroyer albums I've heard so far.

Kaputt
Rubies (these two can switch around though, they're both near perfect)

Streethawk
Your Blues








This Night

Favourite songs: This Night, Rubies, European Oils, Painter In Your Pocket, Kaputt, Song For America, The Bad Arts, It's Gonna Take An Airplane, Streethawk l...

Nice. Thanks for posting.

I have a friend who smokes. I think I will ask her out.

So you wanted to know how Destroyer was cobl? Amazing but too short. He only played for one hour and twenty minutes and the time just flew by.

He played most of the songs of Kaputt (I think 7) which was great. He also played a few older songs I didn't recognize but I liked them as well. There were eight people on stage including two horn players. They added a lot to the older songs., like European Oils (the awesome solo was played with a horn). Bejar didn't play any instruments so he could focus entirely on his singing which was almost perfect.

The highlight was probably Rubies. It was even better live especially when Bejar started shouting the lines: It is now and it is never! I got some major goosebumps. They ended with Bay of Pigs. It was great although they made a mistake. The synth that comes right after the lines As apocalypses go, that's pretty good. Sha-la-la, wouldn't you say, didn't come. Bejar laughed it off by saying: We almost got it! The crowd laughed as well. He just repeated those last lines and they continued and it was just as good as before that error.

The venue was nice as well. A tiny theater for about 200 people and the sound was perfect. I was standing less than two meters from Bejar.

One last thing. I finally bought some Destroyer CD's. They were selling most of his albums for €10 so I bought Kaputt and Thief. I hope it's as good as you say it is. It's a shame they only had Rubies as a double LP.

Ahhhhh man I'm so jealous. That sounds really amazing, just about everything I would want in a Destroyer gig. How was the crowd? I can imagine that guitar riff in Rubies taking off live.

I listened to Thief the other day actually. I've probably oversold it a bit. It's all a bit similar, very much in the light piano/acoustic mould, but it's still a good listen. Some great tracks like Destroyer's The Temple, To The Heart of the Sun..., Way of Perpetual Roads, Mercy.

The crowd was polite. Quiet during each song and loudly applauding between songs.

I think he played that first song you mentioned, something about a temple anyway. I haven't found a setlist yet online.

I'll probably never find a setlist so this is my guess. It's fairly accurate I think although the order won't be exactly correct.
EDIT: it's on setlist.fm now.

Your Blues
Savage Night at the Opera
European Oils
Downtown
Chinatown
Song I didn't recognize
Suicide Demo for Kara Walker
Maxine's Parlour (Bill Fray cover)
Blue Eyes
Kaputt
Libby's First Sunrise
Song I didn't recognize (I think they forgot this one)
Rubies

Destroyer's The Temple
Bay of Pigs

Doesn't he ever come to Australia?

Wow, that's pretty great. A lot of my fav tunes.

Nope. Wouldn't be cost-effective given how small the crowds would be I guess. My only hope is Harvest next year.

Why?

They played in every song if that's what you mean.

So Thief is amazing as well. It's definitely my number 3. The more random guitar breaks the better.
