Dan Bejar started Destroyer as a solo home-recording project in the early to mid-nineties. In 1996, he released his debut full length of stripped down lo-fi electric folk – We’ll Build Them A Golden Bridge. Over the course of 9 recordings as Destroyer, Bejar has established himself and his band as one of the most enigmatic and unpredictable success stories in modern popular music. As a songwriter Bejar is recognized as having few peers. As a musician he is like the court jester, waiting in the wings, poking fun at those who take themselves too seriously and skewering those who would celebrate commerce as art. His is a voice to be reckoned with now, and for the future. His is a body of work that consistently flouts convention in favor of musical leaps of faith, statements of purpose cloaked in subterfuge, and the joyous refrain of an optimist’s heart cloaked in cynicism.
Did you catch Sharon Jones on The Late Show with David Letterman last night? The Grammy nominee performed “Making Up and Breaking Up” along with Saun & Starr (The Dapettes), Paul Shaffer, and the CBS Orchestra.

We are pleased to announce the return of Baltimore’s Lower Dens with their third album, Escape from Evil, to be released on March 31, 2015. On Escape From Evil, Lower Dens’ Jana Hunter emerges: cerebral and hot-blooded, rash and incorruptible, and, crucially, possessing of a loud, clear voice. The album sees Hunter stepping up and taking center stage, and emboldening every aspect of the band.
Escape From Evil is a cinematic, tonally rich work. The sounds are clean and warm. The pulse of the album is strong. Melodies are potent and songs are physical. Lyrics are direct, frank confrontations with life’s common crises. The album title is brazen, and along with the grimly funny title of lead single, “To Die in L.A.”, almost theatrical. Listen to “To Die in L.A.” below and read Jana’s latest interview with Vogue.com.
