It’s going to be very hard to match my immense adoration for The War on Drugs’ 2014 album Lost in the Dream, but the Philadelphia collective’s new album A Deeper Understanding, which arrives later this month, has certainly been shaping up to be a stupendous release. All of the songs we’ve heard so far off of the album have been well received and critically acclaimed. Now we can add Pain to A Deeper Understanding’s growing list of fine tunes, too. The languorous ambling, twangy worn treat from the well loved Americana and roots rock veterans takes us on a dreamy sojourn dripping with dusty nostalgia. “Pain” has never been more sublime. A Deeper Understanding arrives August 25th via Atlantic. Pre-order, here.

Ten Fe drives us through a road of emotion on ‘Elodie’. Curiosity got the best of me and I wondered what ‘Elodie’ meant. Elodie is a French name meaning “probably of wealth” or “uncertain”. I feel the uncertainty of a relationship through this song. After having that clarity, since I couldn’t objectively listen to the song the first time with the question looming in my head, this song title totally fits. Some have describe the music stylings as The Cure and The War On Drugs with a young Springsteen on lead vocal. Enjoy!

August 20, 2014

Philadelphia indie rockers The War On Drugs released one of this year’s best and most critically acclaimed albums, Lost In The Dream, overflowing with plenty of Americana and shoegaze splendor. Under The Pressure is probably my second favorite song off the release, with Red Eyes my absolute favorite. The quartet released a video for the hazy, washed out song today. Since we’re here, let’s listen to the brilliant Red Eyes again, too, because it’s still one of this year’s best.

I’m pretty excited that Philly rockers The War On Drugs is releasing their new album Lost In The Dream soon on March 18 off Secretly Canadian. I’m also excited that I’ll be catching them live soon. Album single Red Eyes is one helluva tune off the album, and now that there’s a video, we get to tune into it again on I Heart Moosiq.

Philly rockers The War On Drugs shared fantastic news of a new full length album due out March 18 on Secretly Canadian. Red Eyes is the hearty first cut previewed off Lost In The Dream. It channels some Springsteen like Americana, but more blurry, lush, and dreamy. It’s a stirring single, signalling things to come from their third full length.
