Painter in Your Pocket by Destroyer
Last week I was all over the place, listening to a lot of things I hadn’t really listened to in a while.
First on the list was Destroyer, whom I didn’t really like in Swan Lake, and I’ve never been a big fan of the New Pornographers, but I like him a lot more on his own. His new album Trouble in Dreams isn’t quite as good as his last album, Destroyer’s Rubies, but it’s still a good listen. My favorite track from Destroyer’s Rubies is definitely Painter in Your Pocket. It doesn’t catch you at first, but a full listen through should grab you.
After that was Vampire Weekend again, still being played a lot. Then Kings of Convenience, who need to a) come out with a new album, and b) play 14 live shows in Los Angeles alone. Their music is so great, I just need more of it! (Fun sidenote, Feist is on the last song of the Kings’ album, Riot on an Empty Street, while Eirik Glambek BÃ¸e sings on the last track of Feist’s new album, The Reminder. Sharing is caring!)
