Vancouver singer-songwriter Dan Bejar is the smart-alecky savant in a writers’ workshop, the bearded guy with his feet on the table casually exhaling wry and picturesque lyrics in a nasal drawl. (Look no further than the opening lines of 2006’s Destroyer’s Rubies: “Dueling cyclones jackknife / They got eyes for your wife / And the blood that lives in her heart.”) A former member of the Canadian indie-rock supergroup the New Pornographers, Bejar’s solo releases as Destroyer have ranged from florid Ziggy Stardust homages to sophisticated synth-pop.
