Contest: To be the band whose reputation among me and my friends furthest exceeds that band's real-world* prestige and/or sales. Winner: Destroyer by a mile. So as we scour the Merge message boards for the tracklist to Destroyer's Rubies (out Feb. 21), here's something to hold over the faithful -- an acoustic version of "Jackie, Dressed in Cobras," which later appeared in all its vocal-harmonized glory on the New Pornographers' Twin Cinema. This version was on a split 7" with Black Mountain, part of a "Quiet Weather Singles Series" that Spirit of Orr is now selling as a four-pack.
