The War On Drugs (Adam Granduciel) released their brilliant debut Wagonwheel Blues back in 2008 and now they are about to release their sophomore album Slave Ambient on August 12th. On first listen it retains the same carefree, psychedelic rock n roll sound of their original with perhaps a little more clarity. Wagonwheel Blues introduced Kurt Vile to many people and though he soon departed to pursue his own solo career TWOD share sonic sensibilities in the droning, hazy approach to the music. Mark this down as one of the year’s best alongside J Mascis and Vile.
Check out the track Baby Missiles from the new album Slave Ambient.
