It took us a minute or two to actually give The War on Drugs a chance. What’s worse is that because of this tunnelvision, realizing that the band is made up of Adam Granduciel and Kurt Vile was overlooked too. On top of things, these guys have been making music since 2005 in Philly, just north of where we are now. What rock were we under? Their 2011 release, Slave Ambienet, on Secretly Canadian, is currently on our winter playlist, especially with the amazing sounds and vibes wer’e getting from the track, Baby Missiles.
Part synth, part percussion and part peacefulness mix to create one truly awesome song.
