Win Tickets ($40): Destroyer @ Wonder Ballroom | w/ Frog Eyes, Indie Rock (September 18)
Trouble in Dreams continues Bejars lyrical and musical assault on all that is stagnant in modern popular music. His is a body of work that consistently flouts convention in favor of musical leaps of faith, statements of purpose cloaked in subterfuge, and the joyous refrain of an optimists heart cloaked in cynicism. Anthems sprawl with shifting layers of guitar and piano, spinning just to the edge of chaos and back, while referencing fantastical realms and mysterious women who may or may not approve of our interloping voyeurism.
