Fresh off of his tour with fellow Canadian carny-barkers Frog Eyes, the Destroyer mastermind has concocted a raw, tense, and equally thrilling EP of guitar-heavy reworkings of Your Blues material with Frog Eyes as the house band. For the most part, things sound blissfully loose — in that tight-when-it-counts, "we've been on the road for a long time" kind of way. Songs that were once plaintive and atmospheric, such as "Music Lovers" and "Your Blues," are now T.

In 1998, Bejar added a rhythm section and took it into the studio for the first time. The resulting recording, City of Daughters, is a sparsely produced collection of catchy pop songs in which Bejar's increasingly obtuse lyrics really start to stand...
