You didn’t mind mixing your beautiful European oils for a still life

Being released well before the existence of this site, Dan Bejar’s Destoyer’s Rubies is long overdue for some love. Fortunately, a friend recently reminded me how amazing this album is… Lush, beautiful, and rather non-genre specific, it’s a wonderful chaser to the New Pornographer’s Challengers shots I keep taking…


Destroyer – Rubies
Destroyer – Your Blood
Destroyer – European Oils

I made a tomb for all the incompatible cells I could take.
I brought bells to the wake.
And you, you didn’t mind shedding your beautiful European blood
as I
screamed – “Death to the murderers we’ve loved all our lives!”

I was good with names.
I had a way with faces.

I was the dominant theme in a number of places.

And you, you didn’t mind mixing your beautiful European oils for a still life.

Oh Candice, we should’ve run for our lives!
When I’m at war I insist on a slaughter and getting it on with
the hangman’s daughter.
She needs release. She needs to feel at peace with her father, the fucking maniac…

Desperate times call for desperate measures.
I wanted you.

I wanted these treasures, too…

And later, track 5…

Destroyer – Looters’ Follies

Go show Destroyer all your love here, here, and here now!
