Music, Rock and indie

Dan Bejar, a collaborator with the New Pornographers and an idiosyncratic Canadian singer-songwriter who makes music as Destroyer, let loose on his last album, Poison Season, channeling “Born in the USA”–Springsteen via a howling horn section and pounding drums. On his newest album, Ken, however, he turns back towards the sounds of 2011’s Kaputt, a dynamic, mature interpretation of ‘80s soft-rock, full of smoky, monochrome synths, cryptic murmurings and muted sax lines.
