Out of Babel
It’s like getting your own pop-up gypsy-folk-punk mash-up in a handy little pack.
The Destroyers are a band not to be missed playing live and this debut album attempts to capture that same energy.
It certainly succeeds for the most part, with title track Out of Babel a stand-out highlight.
Paul Murphy’s twisted mythologies weave tales of intrigue over the top of a frantic cacophony of instruments.
Some of the instrumentals are more for the purists but a party record nonetheless.
