Destroyer's rubies' is a collection of shrewd pop music that takes no prisoners and asks no pardons. equal parts cynicism, disdain, hope and humor; self-referential, self-mocking, sagacious and coy. there is mythology, there is history, there is heartbreak and there is triumph. follow along as bejar leaves his breadcrumb trail twisting through the crumbling forests and bleak landscapes of modern popular music. it's all heady and ecstatic. trust him, he has his reasons.
