Could you guys post your Destructor playlists! Either what you listen to when you write and draw, or what you’d think would make great soundtracks for readers?

Matt: The coloring is generally done to about 50-75% old episodes of The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross.

Sean: That explains the happy little croc-men.

For my part, I tend to listen to one or two albums over and over while writing a story. In the case of “Destructor and the Lady,” that album was Music Has the Right to Children by Boards of Canada. One upcoming story used Two Suns by Bat for Lashes, another …And Justice for All by Metallica and Sisterworld by Liars. Those two more aggressive albums were used to get me into a very specific mindset, though. In general, though, the retrofuturism of that Boards of Canada record, especially songs like “Telephasic Workshop,” “Kaini Industries,” “Bocuma,” “Roygbiv,” and “Olson,” is where Destructor lives; see also “Coconut” by Fever Ray, “Stress Waves” by Oneohtrix Point Never, and “Blue Calx” by Aphex Twin.
