Wow. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 21 years since the Juliana Hatfield Three released their 1993 debut album Become What You Are. After Hatfield’s first band, Blake Babies split, she released a solo album in 1992, and in 1993 – along with Todd Phillips and Dean Fisher – formed the trio.

Their one and only album spawned the hit song “My Sister,” and songs from it like “Supermodel,” “Spin The Bottle,” and “This Is The Sound,” became modern rock favorites. Jangly, super melodic and sounding as good as ever, The Julian Hatfield Three just released their first new song, “If I Could,” from the forthcoming album, Whatever, My Love.

It isn’t really surprising that The War On Drugs are topping so many best-of lists with this year’s Lost In the Dream. Paste. Rough Trade. SPIN. Top tastemakers around the world are praising the Philadelphia band on their third full-length effort, a follow-up to 2011′s equally mesmerizing Slave Ambient.  They sold out venues from Australia to Toronto and circled the globe once or twice, armed with two new members and a transcendent live rendering of the album’s many layers and moods.

So to celebrate a wonderful year and a wonderful record we’ve gathered together some of the band’s biggest moments; join us as we take a look back at the banner year that was 2014 for The War On Drugs.
