Firstly, I would like to apologize for my lack of posts. Perhaps i was a little bit too ambitious with this blog when I created it. The content here will still be of the same quality, I just hope I will be making more posts in the future.
Anyway, here is a great album that I've been listening to.

Destroyer is a Canadian indie rock band fronted by singer-songwriter Dan Bejar. Daniel Bejar is an independent singer-songwriter who formed Destroyer in 1995. As Bejar gained popularity within the Vancouver music scene, he was joined by John Collins on City of Daughters and Destroyer formally became a band..Bejar calls Destroyer's style "European Blues". It is often compared to David Bowie; the band's admitted influences are Pavement, and Guided by Voices, as well as other indie and shoegaze bands. Over the ten-plus years that Bejar has been performing and recording as Destroyer, there have been numerous lineup changes and shifts within the artists he plays with. Kaputt utilizes '80s sophisti-pop, New Romantic, Northern soul, and straight-up adult contemporary to deliver a flawed but fascinating record. This is something you can jam and let wash over you, but also something you can use. It feels funny, tragic, artful, and ultimately true.
