Song of the Day 4/22/08: Destroyer - Dark Leaves Form a Thread

 

I've always sort of wandered into and out of Destroyer's discography, sampling whatever tracks my friends send me in an attempt to introduce me to Dan Bejar out of the context of The New Pornographers' bursting popularity. I could take or leave the "too mainstream" argument - wait, no, I could definitely just leave it - but I love Destroyer for fuller instrumentation and a cagier lyrical vibe. "Dark Leaves Form a Thread" flaunts Bejar's smirking delivery - "nah, it's cool, you go, I'll stay, perfectly at home with this dread..." This one certainly sticks with me as a refreshing departure from ambiguity.

Similars:

Grandaddy
The Shins
The Walkmen
French Kicks
