The War on Drugs
The War on Drugs started like many bands: primary songwriter Adam Granduciel and neighborly aesthete Kurt Vile were just hanging out and playing their guitars. With the addition of Kyle Lloyd, Charlie Hall and Dave Hartley and some meandering guest musicians, the band congealed into the current outfit, which has been playing out in Philadelphia with increased momentum. With influences ranging from Dylan and CCR, to Suicide and Silver Apples, Adam Granduciel joins a distinct set of songwriters with his own brand of timeless musicianship. Ernest playfulness is at the forefront of the listening experience. Layered with popping ecstatic guitars, with drums sitting firmly and a voice that is urgent and in control, it's like "I'm On Fire"-era Springsteen with 80s singalong qualities, while still being firmly planted in the present.
