Destroyer is Dan Bejar, one of the New Pornographers (usually referred to as "indie supergroup New Pornographers" and then followed by a mention of Neko Case). There aren't any chords/tabs for Destroyer songs online, which is just ridiculous; the man can write rock songs (or, in the case of "Farrar, Straus & Giroux (Sea of Tears)," melancholy pop/country songs) like nobody's business, and who doesn't like to rock out, now and again, in the grand indie style? Having said that, I hope I've been rocking (or popping) appropriately to this song.
