Who The Hell Does Dan Bejar Remind Me Of?

destroyerAlternative Yacht-Rocker Dan Bejar, of Destroyer fame, has just released a new album (Poison Season). I became aware of him through his full time gig in the New Pornographers, but became a fan of his after buying and subsequently devouring 2011’s excellent Kaputt. I’m quite enjoying this new disk, but that’s not the reason for this post. For the last 4 years I have had this nagging splinter in my brain that tells me that Bejar’s voice reminds me of someone, and today, just now, it hit me.

Al Stewart, of Year Of The Cat fame.

Go on. Take a listen. You’ll see.
