Philadelphia space rock heroes The War on Drugs release their latest LP, Lost in the Dream, next Tuesday via Secretly Canadian Records, and they’ll join us this Friday March 14th for a Free at Noon performance at World Cafe Live (RSVP here). The album is streaming in its entirety a week out from its release date via NPR Music’s first listen, and while it’s filled with gorgeous soundscaping and atmospheres, Dream has some depth to it, as NPR Music’s Jacob Ganz points out:
This is highly emotional rock that reads as low-stakes at first. It’s evocative and pleasant if you let it float by in the background, but it’s made with hooks that sink in deep if you give yourself over.
Listen to Lost in the Dream here, and stream the single “Red Eyes” below.
