Destroyer | Poison Season
Indie only limited edition clear vinyl. Includes download code
Destroyer’s ‘Poison Season’ opens swathed in ‘Hunky Dory’ strings. Destroyer’s Dan Bejar is a dashboard Bowie surveying four wracked characters - Jesus, Jacob, Judy, Jack - in simultaneously biblical and musical theatre. This bittersweet, Times Square-set fanfare is reprised twice more on the record - first as swaying, saxophonestoked ‘street rock’ and then as a curtain-closing reverie.
