The Music Digest
DJs Pat, Matt, and Margaret

Time to revert back to our solid show format – reacting to new albums after about a week’s worth of “digestion.” The EP we’re discussing today is Destroyer’s album Five Spanish Songs, which came out via Merge on November 26th. The release is actually covers of the Spanish singer Antonio Luque and his band Señor Chinarro. Dan Bejar wanted to have fun in the studio, make something instantly gratifying, and sing in Spanish. This was the result.

Five Spanish Songs
1. Maria De Las Nieves
2. Del Monton
3. El Rito
4. Babieca
5. Bye Bye
