On the new Destroyer album, Poison Season, you’ll find three different versions of Times Square — an opener, a closer, and a ’70s rock take on the song right in the middle. While that might seem like a strange move for most bands, it makes sense for Dan Bejar. During an interview with Pitchfork, he even broke it all down:
It’s a straight-ahead song in a lot of ways. But that’s why it couldn’t just be that version of the song on the record. I really despise pop music these days, so I can’t have people walking away humming songs. I’m totally about drawing lines in the sand: We’ve done this postmodern shrugging of the shoulders for a while now, and it hasn’t really worked out, so if I make pop music at this point, it’s by accident.
We’ve got the “accidental pop” version of the song for you to download. Get it while you can, because it’s only available for the next week!
In anticipation of the new Langhorne Slim & the Law album, The Spirit Moves, the band has given us a six-song EP featuring three tracks from the new one and three tracks from the last Langhorne album, 2012’s The Way We Move.

After giving us a track that included relatively sparse but still uncommon instrumentation (Sagres, which featured percussion and strings), The Tallest Man on Earth has released another song from the album Dark Bird Is Home that’s truer to form. The record’s title track is just Kristian Matsson and his guitar, the way we’ve come to know him.
