If you're looking for the perfect soundtrack for that Miami Vice-themed party you're planning, Destroyer's newest release, Kaputt, should do the trick. Whereas main Destroyer (and wild-card New Pornographer) Dan Bejar's back catalogue is full of ramshackle chamber pop and folky mopes, Kaputt could very well be an ushering moment in the new romantic/yacht-rock revival, sounding like it was recorded on a ship floating slowly through a neon-shrouded harbor in the middle of a serious wine-spritzer binge. While Destroyer's scattershot subject matter remains as cryptic as ever, Bejar has upped the smooth factor in his songs, seeming more relaxed and focused than ever atop lush beds of chorus-laden guitar, drum machines and straight-faced sexy sax solos.
