New Music from War on Drugs

I’m pretty sure we raved about War on Drugs with their Future Weather release, a record that turned time and time again around my house.  The band is preparing their new release, Slave Ambient, on August 16th, and I can already tell that it’s going to cause some problems in my daily musical rotation.  There’s something about the way they craft the songs, using distant vocals in order to allow for the guitar lines to spin and swirl around them.  It creates a great effect, and one that endlessly begs to be put on again and again.  I think more people should write songs like this, but hey, that’s just like, my opinion, man.
