Previously only available on “ruby red” vinyl for Record Store Day, the dbl-LP is now available on “hot white vinyl” and features “Loscil’s Rubies,” a 24-minute bonus track remixed by Scott Morgan (Loscil), who also collaborated with Dan Bejar on the Kaputt LP’s bonus material.
Upon its release in 2006, Destroyer’s Rubies received near universal critical praise and was hailed as Bejar’s defining work up to that point. The full band Destroyer is touring North America once again in support of last year’s critically-acclaimed and Juno-nominated Kaputt.
Destroyer’s Rubies is available on double white vinyl, CD and digital download now in the Merge store. Destroyer’s latest album Kaputt as well the rest of the band’s catalog can be found in the Merge store as well. Listen to “3000 Flowers” at the Merge SoundCloud page, too.
