Destroyer - Live at Le Guess Who? 2015
Shortly after the release of ‘Poison Season’, Dan Bejar and his band gave an exceptional performance at TivoliVredenburg’s Grote Zaal during the festival.
Le Guess Who? considers Dan Bejar a staple artist for a good reason. Over the past two decades, Bejar dallied with The New Pornographers and Swan Lake, but ultimately, Destroyer continues to be the primary hub for the British Columbia-based musician’s vivid songwriting smarts. Somehow, Bejar propelled Destroyer from its oddball experimentalist heyday to the celebrated pop deserter it is today. His latest LP ‘Poison Season’ is the panoramic follow-up to the grandiose masterpiece Kaputt, emblazoned with glimmers of Hunky Dory-era Bowie.
Recorded by Marc Broer at Le Guess Who? on 21 November 2015. Recordings made in cooperation with VPRO / Vrije Geluiden.
