THE WAR ON DRUGS
Philadelphia's The War on Drugs reside at the blurred edges of American music: overexposing studio limitations, piling tape upon tape to maximum density, and then pull off the scaffolding to reveal what sticks, keeping only what's absolutely necessary and dig into what sounds like the best kind best kind of messed up. That's not to overshadow the sharp, personal songwriting at play here. There are certainly cues taken from the very best American bards (Dylan, Petty, Springsteen). Frontman Adam Granduciel somehow found time to record the new album "Lost In The Dream" between constant touring and on 1 November 2014 band is finally set to make a stopover at the Rockhal.
