Expect Destroyer’s swoony yacht-rock-via-chillwave excursion Kaputt to be the year’s first lavishly praised album (along with the whole James Blake thing) — Dan Bejar is certainly rolling out the full PR detail for it. Record’s out at the end of the month; his full tour starts in March, and hits Webster Hall April 3. (Tix on sale tomorrow at noon.) His video budget has evidently increased as well: Below, please enjoy today’s release of the flying whale/pyramid/attractive indie ladies clip for Kaputt‘s title track. They probably should’ve just hired Napoleon Dynamite’s brother for this thing, but maybe he doesn’t want to be typecast; in any event, I’m very excited for the Hipster Runoff post that will inevitably result.
