Two tracks from the War On Drugs' Slave Ambient, a forthcoming album on Secretly Canadian records. This project is fronted by Philly singer-songwriter Adam Granduciel, but this guy is not your average guitar strummer with a drawl.
The sounds and textures behind Granduciel's voice are pretty rhythmic, rocking, and repetitive--not to mention atmospheric. It sounds like Neil Young or Bob Dylan fronting a kraut rock band. I have to say, though, Neil came closer to doing that than Bob did.
The War On Drugs' new LP will be dropping on August 16th.
