Hard to believe it’s already been a year since Detroyer’s Dan Bejar released his latest album, Poison Season, on Merge , isn’t it? I mean, where the heck has the time gone, readers??? OH WAIT, never mind; now I remember: our time was spent listening to f-ing Detroyer.

Still though, after a year lost in the time-warped haze of Bejar’s weirdo pseudo-smooth-jazz, I’m maybe kinda… ready to put something else in my ears. Luckily, so is Bejar; seems he’s just announced a new solo tour of the United States this fall! But because that dude is such a sexy-chameleon-of-musical-unsexieness (my term), the press release for the tour dates does us the nice little favor of giving us a heads up as to what we can expect when it’s just Bejar alone on stage with his killer hair: “think fewer jazz sax-soaked orchestral ballads and more troubadourial fare with guitar and vintage Japanese pedals.”

But if, unlike me, you’re still REALLY into the sax, I wouldn’t worry too much about that, either. I mean, “fewer” jazz-soaked orchestral ballads =/= “no” jazz-soaked orchestral ballads. (Also, what the hell — here’s one more for ya down below. Pour some Burgundy and enjoy!)
