Thoughts on Dan Bejar (Destroyer)

Posted by Jason Diamond

Dan Bejar records music under the moniker Destroyer.  He also plays with The New Pornographers.  I’m sorry to say that I hardly give a shit about the latter point, but I think when Bejar is left to his own devices, he is one of the best lyric writers in music.

I reviewed his latest album, Kaputt, today at another site, but I figure in the spirit of things that I’d post this video of him doing “Farrar, Straus and Giroux (Sea of Tears)” off his 2001 album, Streethawk: A Seduction.  Also, here’s an interview he did with the folks over at FSG last year to go along with that.
