Poison Season

· by Patrick Baillargeon

Known for never making the same kind of album twice, Destroyer rolled out the big guns for Poison Season. The band’s tenth album is a dense and ambitious work of baroque rock, a maelstrom of sound in which jostle brass, strings, pianos, guitars, drums and the still somewhat detached singing of Dan Bejar, the soul driving Destroyer. Not really easy to dissect, Poison Season is a record that has something dark and theatrical about it, but which contains a set of slightly sad, even surrealist songs, whose sinister beauty preclude indifference.
