While I’m delighted to see Destroyer make it on to the Sub Pop discography — thanks to the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol 2 #41 — I gotta say, I’m a little dismayed to see the glorious mane of its founder Dan Bejar trapped beneath a trucker cap on the front cover. (Don’t worry; his hair gets top billing in the video for “Myriad Harbour”, a track he wrote for his other project The New Pornographers.) Speaking of TNP, the Side B track on this single was re-released on the supergroup’s 2007 album Challengers, while the A Side was completely re-worked for Destroyer’s MIDI-orchestrated 2004 album Your Blues.
