Holy crap I have been on this conference call for over an hour now and I am officially giving up on it. People are just showing up and leaving at their own pace and I don't know what exactly we are even talking about. Maybe I should have paid more attention.
So, there are a good 10 to 15 albums that have come out this year that have gotten a lot of good coverage and that I just have not had time to get around to. But, Oh. My. God. This Destroyer album is fucking amazing. I wasn't kidding when I tweeted this yesterday, but I haven't heard the new Bon Iver album yet but I know for a fact that this album is better than it.
This guy has been underrated for years. Besides being apart of Canadian super-group The New Pornographers he is a prolific solo artist and has put out a ton of material over the last ten years. This is the strongest effort yet though. Horribly heart felt, witty, bruising-ly honest, god damn addicting to listen to. I want to hang out with Destroyer and stay out all night and get drunk and listen to him tell stories. That is my dream date.
Sorry, I was moving last week, and my new job is kind of busy (read: conference call that is still going on). I'm going to do my best to keep updating this everyday. Here is another Destroyer song for your troubles.
