Finally getting around to this one. All I know is, I can't listen to "El Rito" without hearing Deep Purple's "Woman From Tokyo."

Such a huge portion of my favorite music features lyrics that run the spectrum (at least to me) of impressionist at best to tossed off at worst - early R.E.M., most of my shoegaze albums, GBV, Phoenix. I can love music for a produced emotion.

Maybe Destroyer is an exception. I think I'm sold on Bejar's lyrical twists. This one's working me over.

"Maria" is a potentially nice song.

I haven't bothered looking up translations for this EP, but I love his lyrics dearly.

If there's a better way of saying "I saw the girl I like with another bloke" than "And I'm reminded of the time that I was blinded by the sun / it was a welcome change from the sight of you hanging like a willow off the arm of yet another visionary / profitious East Van. punk" then I'm yet to hear it.

Honestly listening to this song right now, and it's really good, it's got all the horns from Kaputt but rocks the fuck out like earlier work, I am just about in tears I'm so goddamn happy. I don't know, I just felt like maybe they wouldn't come back, he'd either go proper solo or fully Spanish, I seem to remember him saying he wasn't interested in another Destroyer album.

Dates in the US and Europe as well, can only pray that he somehow finds his way to Australia.

Weird. I listened to Kaputt for the first time in ages this morning in the subway. I like this new song, and would enjoy an album with this kind of sound.

New track strikes me as very reminiscent of New Pornographers for some reason (and yes, I know he is associated with them). Looking forward to the new album - has it really been five years since Kaputt?

Yes, it has. Kaputt was released in January of 2010 and it has been more than five years since then.

It's there now. Reminds me of Rubies for some reason. I like.

It's like a cross between Kaputt and Rubies. If he can pull that off over a whole album we might have an all-timer. Rubies is fucking tremendous.

God I wish more people knew about this band though

I bought it years ago, but I finally dusted off This Night tonight for a spin. Once again, a real good record. Some flat spots, as there is with nearly every record of theirs aside from two or three, but the highs immediately reminded me of why I love this band so much.

The title track is a beautiful opener
