The start of a new year is always slow for new music. This album should get you through until the new tunes come out. Indie Rock band The War on Drugs hit the scene in March 2014 with Red Eyes, and the Indie scene gave a collective shout of joy.
The band released its first studio album WagonWheel Blues back in 2008. Following this one of the band’s originators Kurt Vile left to focus on his solo career. Their next album Slave Ambient was greeted with critical acclaim, and led to extensive touring.
This touring led to extensive loneliness and depression for the band’s primary songwriter Granduciel, and inspired the darkness felt throughout Lost In a Dream . Don’t let the darkness put you off though, this catchy indie album will keep you going through the dim January evenings.
