Right now, Destroyer's "Kaputt" is on my top 10 of 2011. It seems to have captured everything that is the essence of what I need to hear right now. A Post-disco sound and use of the "dark silhouette" style saxophone and lyrics that have and are relayed with tons of texture very much makes it a theatrical listen. Well besides making a pretty great record, Destroyer decided to top it off with a video cherry. I don't know what the song is about and the first time I watched this video, I didn't understand what it was about either, but it was obvious I had to watch it again. So I watched another video that was kinda amazing and then went back to the first video. It didn't make too much more sense, but it did and its perfect. So since I came to this crazy conclusion, I thought it might make sense to make my listening and watching scenario available to you.

[Please note - this is a long crazy process, but would you expect anything less?]

-listen to the track

-watch this
-then this [Kanye West tweeted this video today. "Super simple and creative! Kate Moss for Balmain". He's right.]
-watch again

What do you think?

"Kaputt" is out on Merge Records on 1/25.
