“Come on honey let’s go outside/you disrupt the world’s disorder just by virtue of your grace, you know”

Destroyer – “Rubies” from Destroyer’s Rubies (2006)

Though I’m a little underwhelmed by Dan Bejar & Co.’s latest, Trouble in Dreams, the 2006 Destroyer outing sounds like a modern classic to these ears. If you only know Bejar’s work with the New Pornographers, you should really check out Destroyer’s Rubies. The lyrics are evocative, Bejar’s delivery is really weird but fitting, and the band is one of those bands you want to call a ‘crack back-up band.’ First and foremost, the songs are great. Buy it.

I’m proud to be a part of this number (Buy Destroyer)
