MP3: Destroyer - Downtown
Destroyer is so many years into the game, constantly delivering new and interesting music that "Kaputt" could've easily been enjoyed and forgotten just as quickly, if it weren't so inspired and timeless. It's beyond a game changer, and sprinkled with fun facts that the classic records thrive on (dude recorded vocals while lying down on a couch!).
I've found the whole thing to be incredibly enjoyable, but "Downtown" is an iTunes 5 star song. Fur real.
The music video for the title track "Kaputt" has already made the viral rounds, and deservingly so: it's the visual definition of brilliant.
"Kaputt" is released on the 25th of this month via Merge in the compact disc (why?) and vinyl formats.
