Vancouver native Dan Bejar has long displayed a chameleonic instinct for change while maintaining a unified aesthetic (rather than just pinballing between reference points). No two records sound the same, but they’re always uniquely Destroyer. His latest incarnation often appears to take sonic cues from a distinctly British (usually Scottish, to be precise) strain of sophisti-pop: you might hear traces of Aztec Camera, Prefab Sprout, Orange Juice, or The Blow Monkeys. These songs merge a casual literary brilliance within intense melodic verve, nimble arrangements, and a certain blue-eyed-soul sadness.
On Wednesday, Sept. 23, Destroyer will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Mohawk. Canadian singer-songwriter and touring mate Jennifer Castle opens the show. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
