Watch Destroyer Cover Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci

When I was an intern at Rolling Stone in the late ’90s, I told an editor there that I was “really into the Welsh psychedelic indie rock scene.” He laughed at me, and rightly so. At the front of that scene, alongside Super Furry Animals, was Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. Good times. Anyway, Destroyer covered Gorky’s “Face Like Summer” for AVC’s Undercover Summer Break, at Milwaukee’s Turner Hall. It’s a robust rendition, with a gentle horn section and Dan Bejar’s wan, nasal (wonderful) voice filling the big stage. Check it out.
