Destroyer’s album streaming on NPR Music

Destroyer‘s album Poison Season is now streaming on NPR Music!

“As is often the case in Bejar’s work, he touches upon the rock music that came before him, his whispers on Poison Season bringing to mind the likes of Bryan Ferry’s weary playboy circa Avalon, as well as Al Stewart’s gentle croon on Year Of The Cat. But Destroyer is judicious to draw from the more neglected corners of the canon, too. Certain turns of phrase bring to mind singers like Scott Walker and Harry Nilsson when they’d all but sabotaged their careers, avoiding all the concessions of pop in favor of their own muses’ peculiar paths.”- NPR Music

Watch The New Pornographers’ video for “Champions of Red Wine”

Posted on

The New Pornographers have shared their video for Brill Bruisers track “Champions of Red Wine” directed by Leblanc + Cudmore. Watch it below!

 

Read Director Scott Cudmore’s thoughts and inspiration for the video below:

“Obviously there’s a debt to the Paris, Texas locale of peep shows here and that was sort of the jumping off point for the video. I had this idea of a rambling, drunk loner in a foreign environment – somebody who can’t really connect to anything except for on a very superficial level. All the interactions he has are forced, more like transactions than anything. It’s a portrait of this guy, a few hours, a couple of days, in his life as he flails wildly around – his only means of communication being physical. The video is a fragment of this character. We only know him in the moment, not where he comes from or where he is going.”
