There's an article about Destroyer in this week's paper, AND there's also an extended Q&A with frontman Dan Bejar over on End Hits. It's this-a-way.

Bejar's Destroyer project has undergone many radical transformations over the years, and the current incarnation is a beguiling mixture of lite-smooth jazz, '80s R&B, early rave music, and yacht rock. It's a lot better than that sounds, I swear. Lucky ticket-holders will get to see Destroyer tomorrow night at the Doug Fir, but advance tickets are all sold out, so if you want to go, you'd best be in line on Saturday when the Doug Fir box office opens at 7:30 pm to sell a very limited number of door tickets.

Read the extended Q&A! It contains words like "cellos," "luxury," and "synthetic."
