The name is definitely memorable. The music is just outstanding.
War on Drugs is a Philly band that a musically inclined friend of mine told me about a couple of years ago. Actually, she first gabbed endlessly about the group’s former partner Kurt Vile. ( for good reason) I first dove into Vile and, as always happens, I wanted everything he had done or anyone who was remotely associated with him. Thanks to that I discovered a band that just keeps putting out good music. In my far from sophisticated music words, War on Drugs has a big song 80’s vibe mixed with the best kind of Americana ( maybe a little Bruce Springstein, at times). Though, you’ll notice what is already a fantastic song from the beginning turns into something quite special a minute or so later. Just really special music.
