Today we talk about the latest LP from Philadelphia based band The War on Drugs. Lost in the Dream, released on March 18th by Secretly Canadian, is the first album from the group since 2011’s Slave Ambient. Melding grassroots American indie rock, psychedelia, and shoegaze, this timeless record offers a lot of good grooves in the vein of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Sting, and ‘80s production in general. It is very referential, but does transcend those influences at points through compelling chord changes and interesting song structures. Definitely worth checking out.
