Finally got around to listening to Trouble in Dreams today. And fuck me, another great, great Destroyer album. Lot of awesome cathartic guitar hooks, crescendos (hate using that word because it comes from the Italian "crescendo" which means "growing", therefore crescendos makes no sense, but for lack of a better word), typical Bejar lyrics. It came after Rubies (actually their last album before Kaputt), so not surprising that it's more immediately likeable/accessible than say Your Blues or, daresay I say it, Streethawk.

Highlights for me were Dark Leaves From a Thread, My Favourite Year, Shooting Rockets, Introducing Angels and Libby's First Sunrise (which they play live every now and then) but I liked all the tracks.

How criminal that these guys aren't more popular.

My favorite song from that album is Foam Hands. It's actually my 4th most listened to Destroyer song according to Last FM. Here's a really cool stripped down early version of it (that I know I've posted a number of times before, but I'm going to again):

Nice. For some reason when I was listening to it all I could picture was Wayne Coyne with those huge laser hands but with foam all over them, but it's a cool song.

I liked that one.

Haven't listened to the album yet.

As a reminder from the last page:

Watch Destroyer Perform "Libby's First Sunrise" | News | Pitchfork

Wish it sounded like that on the album.

Not sure if any of you folks subscribe, but Daytrotter posted a new Destroyer session today. Not particularly earth-shaking, but solid.

Self Portrait with Thing (Tonight Is Not Your Night)
Libby's First Sunrise
Foam Hands

I had no idea Daytrotter had paid memberships now. Don't blame them, I guess, but I can't imagine it's easy getting people to sign up. I'm tempted to do it just to get the recent version of Libby's First Sunrise. How does it compare to the video posted above, agentorange?

It's the same arrangement as the video, which I like a lot better than the album. Somewhat worse sound quality, and slightly dirtier guitars, I think. If there's smokin', it's buried in the mix. Maybe a little more wand'rin' around in the DT version.

Bejar better look the fuck out. That elephant is about to fuck him up.

What direction do people think they'll take on the next album? I hope they put one out this year.

I hope New Pornos do. That would be nice.

Nice if you'd actually listen to the damn band he's part of
