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.

Surprisingly, I wasn’t quite exhausted from SXSW, and nor was the near sell-out crowd over at the Mohawk this last Friday night. We all gathered to watch Destroyer, better known as Dan Bejar, not to mention the excellent War on Drugs. As a nice breeze floated in to the venue, you had to know it was going to be a special night.
We here at ATH have been jamming this new song “Comin’ Through” from indie band The War on Drugs most of the day. People representing the band have told us that a new album entitled Future Weather will be released on October 26th on Secretly Canadian. Enjoy the track and head to your local record stores to pick this one up when it comes out.
