It’s here. The new Destroyer album Have We Met is OUT NOW via Merge and it’s splendid. I’ve been lucky enough to sit with the album for a while and early single “It Just Doesn’t Happen” has been my favorite song on the project since I heard it. What a brilliant melody and hook, plus the delivery of “you throw yourself down on the playground / skid to a halt on the runway / you cast a poisonous look to the sun / you know it doesn’t just happen to anyone” is a great chorus.
Bless this band.
