Sunset Rubdown:Daytrotter Sessions

Sunset Rubdown, they are good. Well, they just got even better. The fine people at Daytrotter have recorded a new session with Spencer Krug and his now 5 piece band. I might be biased, well I am biased actually, but these 3 new songs have proverbially blown the door off. Yes it is true, the great genius of our time has gotten better. The three songs in question are new song "Idiot Heart" (formerly known as Icarus) which stomps like an angry elephant. "Three Colors" which is an elongated version of the original song which appeared on an earlier EP, and a slow version of "The Mending of the Gown" which has the distinct possibility of producing tears.

For your downloading pleasure-
Idiot Heart
Three Colors
The Mending of The Gown

Time to celebrate. Destroyer will be releasing their new album on Merge on March 18. The new work is called "Trouble in Dreams" and contains 11 tracks. It is sure to be stunningly good if past works are anything to go by. The first track "Foam Hands" has been made available. It is quite a stately, measured song featuring the always unique voice of Dan Bejar. See what you think.

    Hey I really like that Destroyer song. I'm pretty excited about the new album.

    And there really IS something about his voice, right?
