THE WAR ON DRUGS - A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING VINYL (2LP)
Release Date: 25th August 2017
The War On Drugs the Philly band led by Adam Granduciel whose former members include Kurt Vile return with their 4th LP and follow-up to their 2014 break-out record Lost In The Dream which was universally acclaimed. A Deeper Understanding follows the Record Store Day release of the 11-minute track 'Thinking of a Place' which features on here too. Since Lost In The Dream Granduciel has spent the majority of his time holed up in studios in New York and Los Angeles to write record edit and tinker - but above all to busy himself in work. The result is a 10-track epic masterpiece which encapsulates the melancholic vibes of musical legends Springsteen and Dylan with a touch of Dire Straits and the genres of prog-rock krautrock folk-rock and pop-rock all wrapped in an 80's electro-synth feel. No-one quite does the sounds of the past re-imagined for today quite like The War on Drugs!
