"At some point, when it is made, I will explain this record, word for word, I swear to God." Such is the promise delivered by Destroyer
, on "Grief Point", although I must admit, I have my doubts. Aided by the character he's spent his career in music developing, the shadowy vagabond with a penchant for wordplay, Dan Bejar ranks among the most elusive figures in rock today. His lyrics, notorious for their references to literature and other songs, refuse to be interpreted, and an explanation from the man himself, who rarely submits to interviews, seems unlikely at this time.
