Destroyer In-depth Biography

Dan Bejar} started Destroyer} as a solo project in Vancouver in 1995. His first album, We'll Build Them a Golden Bridge}, was an electric folk} record, setting the stage for the early Bowie} comparisons that were certain to follow his particular vocal style. In 1998, Bejar} added a rhythm section and took them into the studio for the first time. The resulting recording, City of Daughters}, is a sparsely produced collection of catchy pop} songs in which Bejar}'s increasingly obtuse lyrics really start to stand out. Thief}, again recorded in Vancouver, was released in 2000, but by now the lineup had expanded into a quintet. The sparse production and the Bowie} comparisons remained, but Bejar}'s cryptic lyrics and unique voice gave this rant against the music industry an original quality missing from many of that year's releases.

The following year would see Destroyer}'s fourth album, Streethawk: A Seduction}. Streethawk} begins right where Thief} leaves off. The production and the sound remain solid, but the lyrics have become even more obtuse. Stuck somewhere between literacy and nonsense, they must be considered poetry} because any attempt to decipher meaning, however hidden, might drive the listener crazy. This Night} was the next release, an oblique and melodic album that portrayed Bejar} as a ranting, depressed singer.

Destroyer} has not been the only vehicle for Bejar}'s talents -- he is also one of the songwriters (along with Carl Newman} of Zumpano}) responsible for the much-acclaimed New Pornographers}' Mass Romantic} (Mint Records}). This Night}, which appeared in fall 2002, marked his first for Merge}. His quirkiest material to date was captured on 2004's Your Blues}. In 2005 Bejar} collaborated with touring partners Frog Eyes} on Notorious Lightning and Other Works}, a six-track EP containing re-recorded versions of material from Your Blues} with Frog Eyes} as the backing band. In 2005 Bejar} contributed three songs to the New Pornographers}' critically acclaimed Twin Cinema} and spent the better part of that year on tour with the Canadian supergroup. February 2006 saw the release of Destroyer's Rubies}, a return to the guitar-based sound of This Night} with a touch of Streethawk}-era drama. ~ Terrance Miles, All Music Guide
