destroyer: shat on the radio.

DESTROYER: Since the mixtape, I've been posting a lot of pop & hip-hop, so I decided I'd switch it up for a minute. The latest effort from Dan Bejar, Destroyer's Rubies, is on the shelf next to St. Elsewhere, Rabbit Fur Coat, and Silent Shout as what are, in my opinion, the best albums of 2006 so far. With that said, it'd be a shame if I didn't refer you over to i (heart) music to download the Radio 3 session the band did last month.

BONUS TRACK: DESTROYER- Students Carve Hearts Out of Coal

BUY This Night
BUY Destroyer's Rubies

If Dan Bejar's vocals and cryptic poetry aren't quite up your alley, may I suggest a cover of Gnarls Barkley done by none other than the newly sexified Nelly Furtado? All I have to say is that this girl is quite far from her days of being a bird that didn't know where her home was. To sum it up-- Sex sells, and we're buying it. Her lead single off the new album Loose, "Promiscuous", scored her the first US number one single of her career thanks to a little help from sir Timbaland, the self-proclaimed Gandalf of hip-hop. With all that said, she recently did an acoustic cover of another song that's topping the charts right now. It's been described as "hauntingly beautiful". If not that, it's certainly a nice break from the original.


BONUS TRACK: NELLY FURTADO- Maneater (UK single, also produced by Timbaland)

PRE-ORDER Loose, officially dropping June 20th
