It is doubtful that Your Blues is a 'pop' record, though at times it might appear to cash in on what the 80’s revival should’ve been all about: the perverse compositional traits found in The Blue Nile, David Sylvian stripped of his Zen jazz, some of Thomas Dolby’s more hilarious production work with Prefab Sprout, the aforementioned Scott Walker’s Climate of Hunter, and other ill-formed children of the MIDI world. Disregarding ‘post-punk,’ cause that would entail acknowledging ‘punk’ in the first place. Instead, Your Blues is a balancing act between the Adult, the Contemporary, and the Disastrous. Your Blues is a stunning collection of songs and craftsmanship. Teaming with the production duo JC/DC, who he worked with on his first three records (City Of Daughters, Thief, Streethawk: A Seduction), Bejar has recorded some of his most intriguing and challenging songs to date. And that’s saying something considering that he is already considered one of the consummate songwriters of his generation, both on his own and as a contributor to the wildly successful and acclaimed New Pornographers. A master of both the sublime and the absurd, with Your Blues, Destroyer continues to add to its already impressive pedigree as one of the most intriguing acts in music today.
