Song Review

Destroyer - Kaputt

Kaputt is the title track from Destroyers' new LP.  This time around Destroyer took less of a rock approach with their new album and created an album based around late 70ish to early 80ish smooth jazz and slight soft rock elements.  The first thing that jumped out at me for some reason about this song were the lyrics.  I found lines such as "Wasting your days chasing some girls, alright Chasing cocaine through the backrooms of the world all night" to be really catchy.  I also loved the reverberation of the guitar riff about half way in and the horns all around.

I haven't listened to the album as of yet, but if the other songs are anywhere as good as this it may end up being my album of 2011.  The video is also rather entertaining.
