This disc is turning into one of my favorites of the year.
Dan Behjar is Destroyer, and Kaputt was released back on January 25 from Merge. The sound is kind of Steely Dan meets Dave Koz if he smoked pot. I know, weird, right? But great smooth sound, jazzy, and a lot of Bryan Ferry comparisons have been thrown about. New romanticism, they say. I say it’s fucking awesome.
The video itself for the title track is a total imagery homage to music videos from the early 80’s. Check it out. It’s new music I love, and so should you. Or else.
